Kangasala has a long tradition as a tourism and cultural city. The region has inspired the provincial song of Pirkanmaa, ‘Kesäpäivä Kangasalla’ (‘Summer Day in Kangasala’), and it was home to Finland’s first organ factory until the 1990s. Events are a vital part of the urban culture.
Among Kangasala’s royal inhabitants were Kaarina Maununtytär and Kaarina Hannuntytär already in 16th century. Additionally, numerous artists and celebrities have vacationed and worked there.
