Photographer's Note

The Old Church (Vanha kirkko in Finnish) was built in 1824. It was the first church in the city of Tampere which in those days was a small and poor community. The little wooden church represents neo classical style and has cross shape. The bell tower was built in 1828-1829.

In the foreground there's flags of Tampere. Flowers are decorations of Tampere Floral Festival arranged every August.
