Kalevankangas cemetery was consecrated in 1880. There are several works of art within the cemetery's large (15.5ha) area. The red-granite main gate was designed by architect Bertel Strömmer. A peaceful lane lined with spruce runs from the main gate to the cemetery chapel (1913), which represents the late Art Nouveau style. The cemetery also tells its own story about the history of Tampere. There are many memorials, including one for all those who died on the battlefields of World War II. On every Independence Day (6 Dec), a procession organised by the University of Tampere and the Tampere University of Technology begins by placing a wreath on the soldiers' grave.
