Finland Vacation Travel Video Guide

Finland Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Finland.
Finland is a land of a thousand lakes and eternal forests, a land of log cabins and Orthodox churches – a midsummer’s dream in the extreme north of Europe.Helsinki, ‘The Daughter of the Baltic’, ‘The Gibraltar of the North’, a dividing line between east and west and a modern and liberal minded metropolis. Founded in 1550 by Swedish king, Gustav Vasa, as a trading centre, in 1812 Tsar Alexander The First made it the capital of the Principality Of Finland. Turku is the oldest city in Finland and is the country’s first capital city from where Finnish culture was born. It is still evocative of the Middle Ages. The sea, a magnificent island landscape and picturesque timber houses are typical of one of the oldest cities in the Gulf Of Bothnia, Uusikaupunki. It was there in 1712 that a peace treaty was signed between Russia and Sweden and this small, quiet town has a long maritime history. Further north is a town of seafarers and traders, Kokkola, of which the old town boasts the largest number of timber built houses in Finland. The cleric, Anders Chydenius, once lived here and laid the foundation of Liberalism, the freedom of both religion and trade. Oulu is the flourishing centre of Northern Finland. Along with its many green areas this city by the sea comes alive during the spring and summer months. Despite the harsh climate, tropical plants are popular in the city. The hilly landscape of the spacious Pallas Ounastunturi National Park is located in the north west, close to the Swedish border. Yellow-green reindeer moss and dense layers of many other varieties grow on the seemingly endless hills of primeval stone and gneiss. The plant life of this region always surprises those who encounter it for the first time. Finland is a country that boasts more lakes than any other. It is full of picturesque, natural beauty, unique cultural treasures and historic locations: a tranquil paradise set in the extreme north.

Finland is much more than just Helsinki and Lappland. Last summer i visit in place called Koli is very beautiful place, especially in summer. Im finnish, but Helsinki is 1 of the last places where i want to visit. I appreciate more places like Pielinen(koli), Päijänne, Saimaa, Hossa, places in Lappland and Kainuu, etc. When im on vacation i want to see beautiful nature of Finland.

The music is completely inappropriate. Sounds like music from 70s or 80s porn movies. What are they thinking? Totally ridiculous!

John Wagenvoort says:

You'd swear this was shot back in the seventies. As is the same with all of the clips I've seen thus far.

Maruna Junttila says:

Oh boy, this episode must be full of wrong information. xD  Forexample town of Kokkola:  Katarina's square is not only to keep dead people in those buildings durin winter in old time. It is a plague victim GRAVEYARD 1710-1711. And the boat shown 19.10 has nothing to do with Crimean war that boat is a danish fishingboat Krunni and was used as a pub at marketplace in 2002-2008 and no longer excist. The real british Crimean boat is kept in glass room at England's park and it is not sailingboat but more like huge rowboat and full of bullet holes. I am also very surprised they told nothing about the cities like Vaasa, Tampere, Jyväskylä and Oulu etc.. And of course Kajaani is not in south of Finland. xD  Mostly this episode is about long gone buildings, churches, parks and ruins. I wonder who's written this rubbish?

Thorir the Hound says:

This music was terrible lol

David Najor says:

Why do you always have to instill such obnoxious noise into your videos.  Why not some calming, soothing music if you have to put any in at all?

Shiva Invalidos says:

Jesus… Your music is so cheesy that I expect a German was your music editor…

Janina Modes says:

did he say Kajaani is south of Helsinki?!

norman clemens says:
