Finland is one of the northern countries of Europe with many hidden treasures for the knowing traveler.
Finland, or Suomi, extends well into the Arctic Circle and as result of this the sun never quite sets in Finland in summer time. On the other hand it also never quite rises during the winter period. Finland is a scenic country of lakes, islands, forests, pristine wilderness and super-modern technology. This land of contrasts is full of plenty to delight, amuse, inform and enchant the visitor, from its forbidding Swedish castles and onion-domed Russian churches to the reindeer herds of the indigenous Sami people in Lapland in the north.
The history of Finland is foll of almost thousands of years struggle for the acknowledgment of the Finnish nation and country.
