The plan for our second meeting was simple – see something interesting. Stone Cathedral by Lars Sonck was the central and most interesting point of our tour.
Tampere Cathedral is a Lutheran church. The building was designed in the National Romantic style, and built between 1902 and 1907. The cathedral is famous for its frescoes, painted by the symbolist Hugo Simberg between 1905 and 1906 The pictures painted by Simberg were a source of controversy as they show an injured angel and the garden of death.
During the tour we also saw a working-class museum near plevna, and took a long walk along the streets. Of course there was a lot of laughter and jokes. It was a very good meeting. I can’t wait to see the next one!
