Manchester of Finland, or rather the Dubai of Finland?

Tampere is quite often called the “Manchester of Finland” due to the industrial history and large presence of textile manufacturing plants in the very heart of the city. This pet name has also echoed the mentality of our region: in order to get things done, one must work hard to achieve it. Nowadays the pet name has slightly changed, and some people have referred to the city as the “Dubai of Finland”, due to the rapid growth and large construction projects right in the heart of the city.

What is it like to live in Tampere Region?

Too pragmatic for perfectionism, you’ll find a laid-back version of the Finnish way of life. The region and the city of Tampere is functional and conveniently compact with clean nature and fresh lakes all around it. There’s room for everything and everyone – open attitudes to your dreams and aspirations. 

Each of the region’s municipalities, Tampere, Kangasala, Lempäälä, Nokia, Orivesi, Pirkkala, Vesilahti and Ylöjärvi has its own unique qualities. Some say the only things Tampere lacks are an ocean, mountains, and a sense of self-importance. But what the city is not lacking is innovation. The city is developing at a record speed.
