The Finnish pavilion at the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris. It was designed by the great Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen. The painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela made the frescoes in the entrance hall (destroyed at the end of exposure and partly repainted in the 1920s in the lobby of the National Museum in Helsinki). The pavilion, designed in true Finnish art nouveau style, was a plea for Finland then under Russian rule. It raised awareness of the aspirations of the Finnish people to independence.

Tapio Rautavaara, a Finnish athlete, singer and actor. He was born in 1915 and was brought up by his mother. His sports were javelin and archery; in javelin he won five Finnish championships and a gold in the 1948 London Olympics. In archery he won a team world championship in 1958, a Finnish team championship in 1956 and a personal Finnish championship in 1955. He is one of the most popular Finnish popular music performers ever, and his music is still dearly loved.
