Welcome to Moominvalley

Welcome to Moominvalley | Finland | Scoop.it

Tampere Art Museum Moominvalley is a museum devoted to original works by writer and artist Tove Jansson. Its unique collections comprise around 2000 works.

The museum is based on the Moomin books by Tove Jansson. So far, they have been translated into over 40 languages. The books fascinate adults and children alike. The original Moomin illustrations by Tove Jansson are an essential part of the atmosphere of the museum, and the three-dimensional tableaux built by Tuulikki Pietilä add to our own picture of the goings-on in the Moomin stories. The gem of the collection is a blue five-storey Moomin House that is as exceptional as its residents — and its builders, Tuulikki Pietilä, Pentti Eistola and Tove Jansson.

Fred Fry International: Mannerheim Statue 'Tampere'

Fred Fry International: Mannerheim Statue 'Tampere' | Finland | Scoop.it
I have mentioned the Tampere Mannerheim Statue on this blog before here 'Europe's Lingering Scar of Communism'

You see, Tampere was a hotbed of communists during the Finnish Civel War and Mannerheim was the leader of the 'White' forces and routed the communists from the city. So, back in the 1950's when a statue was going to be erected in his honor, the city leaders stuck it in the forest, nowhere near the city itself.

Neti Neti: Tampere for a tourist

Neti Neti: Tampere for a tourist | Finland | Scoop.it
The city itself is located between small rapids. The rapids flow between two lakes. For these reasons water is a dominating element in the city structure. Besides constant surrounding of water Tampere is known for strange black sausage, ice hockey, and jolly accent. Tampere is a pretty laid back big city and maybe for that reasons it's constantly ranked as number one place to move in Finland. The people from rural Finland find it as an easily approachable city to move into if they want to pursue new challenges.
