It could be said that Finns are folk of extraordinary people. We are all about honesty, integrity and true friendship. The process of becoming friends might take a while, and some of us may seem a little bit shy at first glance, but Finns just are a bit of slowly warming people. However, once you get to know us and manage to establish that special bond of trust, there is no going back or getting rid of us!

Relaxing Sauna Culture

Now, if you are wondering what the best way of establishing that special bond which is needed for true friendship is, just look for the nearest sauna! That should not be too difficult, as there are approximately 2 million saunas in Finland (and only 5,5 million people!). Definitely another great reason why you should visit Finland, without a doubt. Saunas are made to be relaxed and enjoyed. At first, it might sound a bit odd to sit in a wooden shack, naked, with random people - but once you get used to it, it is kind of relaxing. If you are feeling a bit stressed or just need to get something off your heart, the sauna is the place to share your joys and sorrows while receiving everyone's full support and understanding.

To make your unwinding sauna session even better, enjoy some Taiga Chocolate in the sunset while sitting a pier watching the sunset. Truly a Finnish moment you must experience, and should be enough of a reason to be packing your bags already!
