Finland truly sets itself apart from the rest of the world. After the long cold winter Finns celebrate their summer very passionately. Months, the temperatures soar high and the sun does not set at all. When the sun stays up for over two consecutive months in the northernmost parts of the country it is time to be festive. You may have heard that Finland is the “Land of a Thousand Lakes”. Well, it is also a land of thousands of forests. Over 70 % of Finland is taken over by beautiful forest more than any other European country and an area larger than UK or Italy! The 188 000 lakes of Finland, on the other hand, are so vast that Finland has most water in relation to land mass of all the countries in the world. This water is also some of the cleanest.Finns are the unquestioned champions of sauna we have over 3 million of them, which is more than one sauna for every other citizen. Add the hundreds of thousands of small lakeside cottages and cabins to this peace and quiet guaranteed.You didn’t know the Angry Birds were a Finnish invention, did you now? Clash of Clans also comes from Finland, as do most of the greatest mobile phone games ever invented. Finland has held first place in OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) for several years, ranking Finnish education system as one of the world’s best. This means that the Finnish school also free of charge is a good place for a child and that they are happy.
