This is a collection of Sandalsand’s pictures from Finland. They are almost all from the capital of Helsinki. I will have to make it back to other parts of Finland sometime.
If you look up all articles from Finland, you will also find a world heritage site and a regular travelogue. Before anything else, start with these pictures from Finland.
These images are from the north-eastern municipality of Enontekis (Enontekiö) on a road trip from and back into northern Norway.
The capital of Finland greeted us with lovely spring weather offering a perfect setting for several walks around the beautiful city centre, as well as a boat trip to a World Heritage Site.
Afterwards, find more photo galleries on Sandalsand.
Learn about the country on Wikipedia. Here is a moderated excerpt:
Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a Nordic country and a member state of the European Union in Northern Europe. It shares land borders with Sweden to the west, Russia to the east, Norway to the north. The Gulf of Bothnia is to the west, and the Gulf of Finland of the Baltic Sea across Estonia to the south. Finland covers an area of 338,455 square kilometres (130,678 sq mi) with a population of 5.5 million.
Helsinki is the country’s capital and largest city, and forms a larger metropolitan area together with the neighbouring cities of Espoo, Kauniainen, and Vantaa. Finland is officially bilingual, with Finnish and Swedish being official. The climate varies relative to latitude, from the southern humid continental climate to the northern boreal climate. The land cover is primarily a boreal forest biome, with more than 180,000 recorded lakes.
