Everyone talked about Vappu – so we asked what it actually is. It’s the 1st of May the day of the workers but in Tampere it’s one crazy week were people just celebrate. There they also had this baptism for first year technical students. First we couldn’t really imagine how big Vappu actually is.
It was crazy to see the whole organization round Vappu and that they had two cranes which put the students into the river Tammerkoski. My Vappu conclusion: I never saw as many people in Tampere as at Vappu.
