Hämeenkatu is the main street of Tampere. There are two department stores on street plus a lot of small shops coffees etc on the street. On Hämeenkatu there is the bridge that goes over Tammerkoski River.

Nowadays you cannot drive the whole street and it is for nobody. Just don't go there. There is grass that looks like plastic.

The main street of Tampere. It will lead you from a railway station over the river and right there where all of the shopping centers are and small shops and the biggest Nordic market hall, the Tampere market hall.

There are four statues along this bridge. They are said to protect the city. It crosses over Tammerkoski River ,where you can see 3 sets of rapids. Very beautiful.

Tampere seems to have had a service training for the staff of the clothing shops. Or then there are people who have born to be friendly sales persons. The best in Finland!

This is a definite main street of Tampere. It goes through whole the centrum area and several shops, cafes, restaurants are located along it or just close by.
