Finns like to sing karaoke songs. When I traveled to Finland, I heard a lot of Finnish songs and Russian songs of the Soviet era (“Moscow Nights” and so on) in their performance.
Suomi = wonderful nature, healthy lifestyle, calmness and calmness!
July in Finland is a real month of strawberry! It sells everywhere.

Something from my dad’s memories. Three Finnish moments that amazed him in 60-80-ies (USSR Time) – very good quality of Finnish furniture and some other goods, Finnish analyzer for determining the amount of gold in the rock, and, of course, the great difference between Finnish and Soviet way of lives.
Something from my family travel memories:
- The Finnish Gypsies in their beautiful national costumes.
- Very polite Finnish police and border guards.
- Finnish social benefits, pensions, etc.
Also it’s necessary to mention well-known fact – very high level of Finnish education.
