If you visit Rovaniemi in Lapland (a town known for the Santa village) and try a ride on dog or moose pulled carriage among other snow-related activities, there are many other things to see and do.
The port city of Turku is situated about 2 hours of car ride west from Helsinki. You can take direct bus at Helsinki airport terminal or you can transfer to a small plane on intra-country flight Helsinki-Turku. The city is surrounded by diverse coastline of the Baltic Sea. The River Aura also flows into the sea. Turku was founded in the end of the 13th century. However, people lived in the area as early is in the Stone Age. Soon after the city was founded, Turku cathedral (Turun tuomiokirkko) was consecrated. The cathedral is situated in the center of the city and you can access it easily by public transportation. It is one of the most popular places there.
About five hours on the Baltic Sea starting at Turku, finland, there is an autonomous Finnish province with population which speaks Swedish- Åland Island. Its capital of Mariehamn is home to local parliament or a post office, for instance.
Finnish national parks are considered among the most beautifulin the world. There are thousands of lakes in the southwest of the country and, in the Baltic Sea (near the coast), many islands covered of untouched nordic nature.
Right after we traveled through the capitals of the Baltics, we moved by ship to Finland where we paid a visit to beautiful yet bit expensive Helsinki. Still, it would be a mistake to pass it for there is lots to see.
Today we go to one of the islands near the Finnish capital of Helsinki. There are many islands yet only one island complex is that important that was with other six Finnish landmarks included to UNESCO’s list.
Today we visit the capital of Helsinki in the country also called Suomi. Despite the city is well-known and sought by tourists, don’t expect crowded streets. As the country in which it is situated, the city is calm and quite quiet.
Today we take you to a small harbor town on the coast of Osthrobotnie. The city of Kokkola situated between Oula and Vaasa is not something that we would recommend you for an individual trip, however, if you pass by, you should stop there and see what they have.
After another traveling across northern Finland we visit the sixth largest city of the country of thousand lakes – Oulu. The city has long history. Its golden era was in the 19th century when it became world tar production center. Thanks to this Oulu was not just a trade center, but also center of culture, education, and art.
In the article we travel to far north and continue in our last story about Rovaniemi. However, we will not stay any longer in northern town. We will travel a few kilometers to the north. There is the place giving tourists the reason to stay in Rovaniemi. It is the home of Santa Claus – Santa Claus Village.
