Essi recommends: Yrjönkatu Swimming Hall. An impressive example of 1920s classicism and it is an important building historically as well as architecturally.  There are separate times for women and men. Customers may swim with or without a bathing suit. (Yrjönkatu 21, Helsinki)

Over 70 % of Finland is taken over by beautiful forest – more than any other European country and an area larger than UK or Italy!  The 188 000 lakes of Finland, on the other hand, are so vast that Finland has most water in relation to land mass of all the countries in the world. This water is also some of the cleanest.

THE HOME OF THE MOOMINS As if Santa Claus wasn’t enough, Finland is also home to the mysterious little creatures called the Moomins. Created by the talented Finnish author and illustrator Tove Jansson, the Moomins’ presence can be felt and seen – both metaphorically in the surrounding nature and for “real” in places such as the Naantali Moomin World or the Tampere Moomin Museum.
