GAL­LE­RIA RAJATILA

Hämeen­puisto 10, 33210 www.ra­jataide.fi A gallery owned by a lo­cal col­lec­tive, show­ing mostly works by young Fin­nish artists. It also houses a small se­lec­tion of lo­cal comics, cat­a­logues and art books.

LENIN MUSEO

Hämeen­puisto 28, 33200 www.lenin.fi The only mu­seum about Vladimir Ilyich in the Western world, lo­cated in the build­ing where Lenin and Stalin met the first time, when Fin­land was still part of Rus­sia. The ex­hi­bi­tion has a mimeo­graphed charm – and is (in a good way) def­i­nitely not overde­signed. It also has the sofa Lenin slept on dur­ing his visit to Tam­pere.

K-MAR­KET

Sata­makatu 8, 33200 www.k-mar­ket.fi This sim­ple K-Mar­ket is one of thou­sands in Fin­land. But this one’s housed in a build­ing that looks like an art deco space­ship (from the right an­gle at least). My work­ing room was right around the cor­ner from here – fond mem­o­ries!

ETELäPUISTO

Eteläpuisto, 33200 www.ete­la­puisto.fi This is as close as you can get to na­ture in­side a city. It’s ear­marked for de­vel­op­ment as a fancy residential area. Start your trip while it’s still public land; go to­wards Pyynikin Näkö­torni from here and en­joy the view on lake Py­häjärvi.

PYYNIKKI OB­SER­VA­TION TOWER CAFĒ

Näkö­torn­in­tie 20, 33230 www.munkkikahvila.net A cafe­te­ria in the base of an ob­ser­va­tion tower. The spe­cial­ity is ‘munkki’, a kind of dough­nut which by Fin­nish law is only taken with cof­fee! The smell of munkki greets you half­way up the moun­tain.

Daniel Stolle was born in Ger­many but now re­sides in Fin­land. He’s been an il­lus­tra­tor since 2007, spe­cial­is­ing in ed­i­to­rial work for clients such as Men’s Health, The New York Times and The Times. www.daniel­stolle.com
