The first railway station in Tampere was built in 1876. However, this station was too small for the growing city; a new, more spacious station was needed. The new railway station and clock tower were built in 1936 and together they form an impressive eastern end to Hämeenkatu street. The building represents Functionalist style and its outer walls are covered with beautiful, burnt-red brick. The winds of change are blowing at the Tampere railway station again. The platforms are going to be covered with a huge glass roof-there is also a plan to turn the railway station into a huge transport center, which would also include a bus station.
