What makes Tampere special for you?
Tampere is a beautiful city and lovely place to be around. I love the atmosphere of this city, it’s so friendly, energetic and safe. I love the nature around here, lakes, forest and parks are so wonderful. As a young parent, I feel this city is so perfect for young family with kids to stay. Above all the city of Tampere is full of opportunities. I do believe Tampere will grow very fast in few years. Tampere is excellent place to study and to build up your future business.

What potential do you see for Tampere in the future?
Tampere has been doing so much movement in developing the city, especially the infrastructure, both transportations and business centers. Tampere has so many young entrepreneurs and new businesses, also the amount of immigrants  is also increasing year by year.
