Finland is a country in the northern part of the European continent, between Sweden and Russia. Famous worldwide for its efficient health system, but especially for its education system, Finland has increasingly attracted the attention of foreigners, becoming one of the essential destinations in Europe in the last decade.
With booming urban development, stunning wildlife, and seemingly detached landscapes, Finland has plenty of beautiful places worth visiting.
Reviewing the most impressive places in this country, we recommend those who travel to these lands for the first time to visit the following tourist attractions:
1. Kemi Snow Castle - Finland
Every year, Kemi, a small town in Finnish Lapland on the shores of the Gulf of Bothnia, invites visitors to explore the world’s largest ice castle. The hotel is built every year, at the beginning of winter, and in the spring, it melts. From year to year, its architectural design is more and more spectacular, but the structure remains the same. It consists of a hotel, a restaurant (where even the mugs are made of ice), an art gallery, and a small chapel. Travelers from all over the world come here to visit the impressive castle, many of whom even choose to get married at the on-site chapel.
2. Santa's house in Rovaniemi, Finland
3. Northern lights in Lapland.
4. Olavinlinna Castle in Savonlinna.
Dating back to the 15th century, the castle is famous for being the northernmost medieval stone fortress still standing. With three colossal towers dominating the entire area, the castle was built on a rocky island in the Kyronsalmi Strait that connects Haukivesi and Pihlajavesi Lakes, with the role of protecting the land from invading enemies.
To get to the castle, you will have to go through a series of bridges that seem to be slightly creepy, and inside, you will find a maze of ornate towers and beautiful chapels.
