Things to do in Finland

Travel to Finland

Finland’s history contributes to the unique, modern and interesting place it is today. At one point it was under Swedish rule for 600 years. Following that it fell under the Russians and became a grand duchy in its empire. In the Tzar’s hands, grand plans were had for its capital city, Helsinki, and to reflect such majesty, an emperor-style city plan was created. Today in Helsinki, it is easy to see and appreciate the grand design throughout the spacious capital. Now, completely under Finnish rule since 6 December, 1917, Finland is a thriving country with a rich economy that attracts business internationally. Its education, healthcare and social security are unparalleled worldwide and all state financed.
