Finland — Finland stands quietly, but proudly, at the far northern crossroads of East and West. Long influenced by both Sweden and Russia (its alternate rulers until independence in 1917), it ultimately maintained a very distinct culture, language, and mindset. While Helsinki couldn’t be hipper and hotter these days, with booming architecture, film, fashion, and music scenes, the Finnish soul resides within the cool and timeless countryside beyond. The Germans, who have long cherished Finland’s tranquil beauty, fittingly call the country Natur mit Unterhaltung – nature with amenities.

Why Go

For the unique (and uniquely sincere) culture, fantastic museums, quirky art scene, and exquisite natural beauty.
