Finland on the Internet

Finland has gained a reputation as the country of advanced technology. That is what Finland is, but also much more. There are the clean nature, peaceful life in the countryside as well as many aspects of city culture. Dramatic changes in the seasons bring snow, ice, sub-zero temperatures, burning hot days and everything in between.Finland (McKlein)

According to international researches, Finland is the leading information society in the world, the least corrupted and the most equal nation. The capital Helsinki, for it´s part, is the safest city in the world. Through her history, Finland has also been a gateway between East and West, which has added its own flavour to the Finnish way of life.
