Tampere is located between two lakes, Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi. As the difference between the two lakes is 18 meters, the rapidly flowing Tammerkoski River has long been a useful resource for producing electricity today.

Lenin spent his exile in the city between 1905 and 1907 and met Stalin for the first time. The memories of these have been preserved today by the Lenin Museum, built in the building of the meeting.
