Finland

Finland is one the most sparsely populated countries in Europe. The country is famous for its clean nature, saunas and people who think highly of peace.

One of the country's greatest tourist attractions is its versatile nature. The pearls of the country are the rugged fells of the north, the endless lake scenery of the central areas and the east, and the labyrinthine archipelago of the south and the west.
