Finlayson Centre information
Tampere’s era as an industrial city began with the arrival of Scot James Finlayson, who established a small workshop by the Tammerkoski in 1820. He later erected a huge cotton mill; the massive red-brick building was the first in the Nordic countries to have electric lighting, which started operating in 1882. It has now been sensitively converted into a mall of cafes and shops; you’ll also find a cinema here, as well as a great brewery pub and a couple of intriguing museums.
