With Christmas just around the corner and Finland blowing out 100 candles to celebrate their independence today, we thought we’d let you in on the mesmerising mystery of this winter wonderland with 10 fun facts. As a country set deep in the north of Europe, Finland has attained a complex history; as previously an autonomous entity within the Russian Empire, and now declared independent on this day 100 years ago.
Whilst Finland has a fascinating history, they’ve also acquired an overwhelming stretch of snow capped forestry and forward thinking cities that we wish to explore. But read with caution, these 10 facts will for sure leave you packing up your life into a suitcase to go live with the real-life Santa Claus in their very own Lapland.
