The water flows from Näsijärvi and runs in rapidsthrough the city, falling a total of 18 meters before it reaches Pyhäjärvi. The factories harnessed the power of the rapids, and this is how the story of this industrial city began. Today, Tampere is the largest inland city in Scandinavia and its population is growing.
