You can go shopping, restaurants, cafes, churches, parks, libraries, bus stations, buses, rail stations, where you want to go. Notice:at this time, many places on the street are under construction of the road, so let's walk along the cautionary signs to prevent accidents. 現時点、通りの多くの場所は道路建設中なので、事故防止のため、注意標識に従って歩行しましょう。

We visited Christmas market at Hameenkatu the weekend before Christmas. The place was abuzz with people of all ages. Besides Christmas market there are cafes, restaurants, shops and a park in the vicinity. Excellent area to hangout in Tampere.

Nowadays you cannot drive the whole street and it is for nobody. Just don't go there. There is grass that looks like plastic.
