      city or travel card?

      by mindcrime Online Now May 30, 2013 at 6:44 AM

      we'll have 48h in Tampere arriving there by train at 11.00am (wednesday) and leaving at 9.00am (friday).
      We'll be staying 2km west of the train station.

      1.Does it make any sense to have a card for the buses (10e for 48h) or we can just walk around these 2 days?
      2.what about the city card? it costs 31e for 48h but what attraction does it include?

      for the moment the only attractions I have on my list is Lenin Museo and some central churches. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

      I want to book with Expressbus from Tampere to Turku on friday 14 of june as they seem to run more frequent than train and they are cheaper (although I have to wait for the june offers).
      do they depart from a specific place in Tampere?
      Do they use a regular bus station in the city or some weird spot off the centre as many low cost companies that is hard to be reached by a tourist?

      Hi all,

      I'm a student so, 50 euros per night is going to look costly. This seems to be the price that Omenahotelli is charging. Last year in 2007 I managed to find a place via the Tampere tourist booklet for 25 euros unfortunately it seems that particular hotel has decided to go somewhere else and is now charging three times the amount!

      Would anyone be kind enough to provide me the Category D accommodations in Tampere tourist or know any place that doesn't cost as much? It all seems like hidden hotels....
