The modern and cosmopolitan city in southwestern Finland is one of the largest cities in the country with more than 200,000 inhabitants. Framed by mountains and the two lakes Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi, the village by the Tammerkoski River offers a very special scenery. The river runs through the middle of the city. In summer, the riverbank comes to life when people meet here to eat, drink and listen to music. Life in Tampere is strongly influenced by the city's universities and colleges. In addition to Tampere University in the city centre and Piramk University of Applied Sciences in the north of the city, Tampere University of Technology is located in the Hervanta district. If you are staying in the Finnish metropolis, you should definitely visit the harbour of Lake Pyhäjärvi (Laukontori). There are numerous cafés, bars, clubs and pubs on the central market square, inviting you to spend convivial hours in a relaxed atmosphere. In the restaurants of the town, visitors can enjoy local specialities from the local cuisine.
