One must love Pispala for its' colorful wooden houses and bohemian feeling: you can find a common sauna (Rajaportti), a legendary barbecue place (Vaakon nakki) and an alternative gig club (Vastavirta) here.
Tampere City Hall is a neo-renaissance building situated at the edge of the Tampere Central Square. The current city hall was built in 1890 and was designed by Georg Schreck. The palatial building has many halls and the city of Tampere holds many events there. During the Great Strike in 1905, the so-called "Red Manifest" was read from the balcony of the Tampere City Hall.
