The happiest country on Earth

Finland, a young but strong country, is a land with vast distances and with a population of around only 5 million. It is not so rich in natural resources, however after the 70’s the country has seen a very impressive growth in various sectors including economy, culture and education, as well. As a results of all of these changes in 2018 it has been selected to be the “happiest country on Earth”. So, I have to admit that it is an unforgettable experience that I can live here and work at UEF since fall 2016.

For many foreigners the natural beauty of Finland, from hundred thousands of lakes to forests, from sea and archipelago to Lapland, is truly breathtaking. Its attractive and spectacular landscapes and natural scenery attracts people and photographers so you can easily find eye-catching images all around the web. However, I would like to share with you my own experiences obtained during past years. Hope you will like some of these pictures.

Listen to Sibelius’s Finlandia and enjoy my pictures in the video below:

In this short collection, I have tried to catch a glimpse of every stunning piece of nature and landscapes, that Finland has on offer and I have had the chance to visit. I’m really passionate about the splendid beauty of Finland. This “video” only shows a small part of the many wonders of the country beholds and you could probably have seen definitely better – more professional ones, earlier, however if at least one of my photos could raise memories in someone, it was already worth to shoot it and to share with you.
