Finland is very beautiful too and things are allright!

So,what du u think about us?Tell everything you think?

This is also some kind of investigation to my school!

Thanks!



PS.Have you seen Finnair's new livery?It's nice.

I was in Helsinki for a day about 5 years ago. I guess I liked it. Clean city, I think the women were allright, modern, etc...

What does Finland have? Nokia, thats right. Marimeko, the women's clothing. Finnair, never flown them.

New livery is very European though.

Never been there but I would like to visit Helsinki. If all the Finnish people are like the Finns on this forum, then Finland is full of great, easy going people. I hear the scenery in Finland is spectacular also. The only thing bad about Finland is that they dont have any decent football teams. Otherwise I guess its a great country.

Isn't Santa Clauss from Finland??? Well if so that should say enough about the Finnish people.

Ok now serious: I never met Finnish people but I think they are OK, they have such a nive scandinavian language just like the Swedish, Danish and people from Norway.

My link to Finland is through my Girlfriend Big grin

Yes, been to HEL many times, it IS very clean and pleasant, as are the people. It can get a little nippy though!

Have taken the ferry over to Tallinn which I also enjoyed thoroughly.

One of my favourite things about Helsinki are the Cafes. Finnish people love coffee, as I found out. I felt at home right away!! They're also into TANGO, which I was very surprised to find out-as I am half-argentine myself, I was pretty amazed at some of their dancing skills!!

And now aviation;
Every time I visit HEL it seems to be so empty (nothing against that), but I find trouble trying to find any a/c as we taxi in to the gate. I've flown AY once from MAN via ARN. Service was excellent, for an airline I'd never flown before.

I usually fly with BA though, as I'm in the Executive Club, and they fly in at OK times.

Nice place.

I went to Finland in 1998. I flew from JFK to HEL on a AY MD11. I had a good flight with AY, service was good and arrived on time (full flight). I have to say that HEL Vantaa is a very beautiful airport. Being from Mexico, we have very ugly airports, but HEL really amazed me. Helsinki, the city, is a little bit small (remember I live in one of the biggest cities in the world) but efficient and clean. I remember shopping in a mall called Itakescus (correct my spelling) and visiting downtown. I also liked the Radisson SAS hotel I stay in.
My cousin has a Finnish friend and many estonian friends, so we also went to Tallinn. About Finnish people, I think they are very frindly and you can get along with them quite well.

Hope this helps.

Ok, memories are coming back...

Of Helsinki, I remember the train station, with the two giant statues on either side holding the lights at the entrance, I thought enough of it to take a picture.

I also remember Senate Square which was pretty. And some church, very modern with like a round dome over the top, Church of the Rock or something it was called.

Yes, we also went to Tallinn, which was very cool, because this was 4 or 5 years after their independence from USSR, so the city and country were gradually developing themselves into a capitalistic society. Remember visiting the US Embassy (a floor in an office building), remember the city's finnest hotel, and some other random stuff.

All in all, a fabulous trip.

Christianbothe: I wouldn't know about the Aki Kaurismäki movies, but without seeing any of them I'll say sure, Finland's a great country!

Although I'm half Finnish I do have a certain impartiality to Finland Big grin I think it's a really nice place. I'm looking forward to the rye bread with Oltermanni cheese, Aurinko Jaffa (orange soft drink), and Tupla candy bars... ohhh they're all soo good!

I've been to Helsinki (Helsingfors in Swedish). The Finns are very nice and hard-working. Helsinki struck me as very modern, much like Stockholm. I know the Finnish language is not of the Indo-European family of languages and as such is not related to English, the Germanic languages (including Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, etc.) and the Romance languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, etc.). It is of the Finno-Ugric family of languages, which includes Estonian and Hungarian. The name of Finland in Finnish is "Suomi."

All of the 5 Nordic countries' flags are horizontal crosses. Finland's is a light blue cross on white field. Finland is a part of the Nordic Council. The 5 Nordic countries are Iceland (Island), Norway (Norge), Denmark (Danmark), Sweden (Sverige), and Finland (Suomi). I don't know if Estonia has joined the Nordic council, but its culture is very similar to Finland's.

Much of Finland's territory was taken by the Soviet Union during the early 1900's. Northern Finland is called Lappland.


Well, that's about all I know of Finland.

We regard you as being as brave as the Poles, but we know very little else about you.

For Christianbothe:

Life we have here in Finland is not so fun all the time.
I have not seen much Aki Kaurismäki's movies, but I know something about them.Some of us have good humor (I have) and we all have good life here.....
Yes and we have many good hockey players in NHL, Teemu Selänne, Saku Koivu, Jyrki Lumme, Antti Laaksonen, Kai Nurminen......and goalkeeper Jani Hurme too.Helsinki Airport was the best airport in the world in 1998 and Finnair is also one of the best airlines in the world.I can write more info soon,maybe here.......Just check this forum out soon!Bye!

PS:Sash! is very good!

For Rtuvey:

So, we make mobilephones called Nokia, which are maybe the most famous mobilephones in the world!
Do you use Nokia?I have to say same thing as to Christianbothe !!!!!!


Well THANX FOR REPLIES!

You know a lot of about Finland,that's cool!

Hey Nurminen,
I've never been in Finland and never met someone from there.
I live in Rome-Italy and what I know of Finland is that is home of two of my worst enemy: Nokia (I work for Ericsson) and Mika Hakkinen ( I am a Ferrari fan).

Hehe, just kidding.
I'd love to visit Finland and I think Finnish are kind, nice and cute too (both male and female).
I would enjoy so much you climate! Yes, I am Italian but I like the Nordic climate.

Ciao

Well, while we're on the subject, I'd like to know what Finnish people think about people of color? I'd love to visit Finland, Iceland, Norway, ect.. one day, however, being a black female, I don't know if it's a good idea or not. Well, does any one know? Any blacks traveled to any of the Nordic countries lately? What will I be up against? Please share your stories.

I don't find it very nice to get your country being praised by praising it yourself. The feeling I get from your messages is "The Finland is great! It's the best country in the world etc..." Sure, you could ask others to tell what they know about Finland / Finnish people, but, do not start telling how great your country is.

Btw, personally, I don't find Finland a very nice country. Lived here my whole life, but still......I do have been thinking of moving to some other country. Personally, I'd like to move to Canada...well, this is only my opinion, but I do know people who agree about my opinion of your messages...

Thank you Nurminen and Joona!

Well, I guess there's racism every where you go. Since my goal is to travel to off beat areas, I find myself very concerned about how I will be treated. It's too bad I have to ask this type of question, but it is a real concerned. There are even places in the United States where I am not welcome. Sad, but reality. I wanted to go to Iceland one year, but the trip involved staying in local guest houses/farms. And the odds of the locals ever having a black in their home are probably slim to none! Didn't want to risk not being allowed to stay. But you know what, one day I'm just gonna do it anyway. Heck, you only live once, and plan on seeing the Lord's glory before I leave this earth. So, I look foward to boarding a Finnair MD11 in the not so distant future.

cheers...

My last vacation to Europe included Helsinki. We took the Viking Line from Stockholm (aka Baltic Booze Cruise) which was a blast. I found the Finns to be very warm and kind people. They were always helpful and didn't mind speaking English. I do speak other languages, but Finnish isn't one of them. I'm not making fun here, but I thought Finnish was one of the most delightfully strange languages I've ever heard. I met an American in an Irish Pub (Molly Malone's) who told me that they use Finnish as the Klingon language in the Star Trek series. I don't know if that's true, but I was amused.

I thought Helsinki was beautiful, if a bit small. I wasn't there long enough to figure out the night life or anything, but it seemed active enough.

We then took a Finnair MD83 from HEL to LED. Nice airline with great service. Vantaa is a great looking airport. Efficient too!

Now to the only thing I didn't like. The food! I'm sure it's because I wasn't raised there and I'm not used to it, but I thought the food was really strange. Finnair served this purple potato salad looking thing that was purple because it had beets. YUK! And I got a cheeseburger in Helsinki thinking it would be safe, but it was slathered with this cheese flavored mayonaise sort of a thing. Not very good at all. I'm not trying to start a war here, but you asked. I realize I didn't spend very long there, and with proper research, etc. I could have found some amazingly delicious food. That's just one thing that sticks out for me.

Bottom line: Loved Finland. Loved the Finns. Bring a lunch!

Hesburger!!!!

I haven't actually purchased anything from there but a 2nd cousin of mine used to work at the one in Kotka I think... and when I was there they opened one in Savonlinna where I spent most of my time...

TM you honestly should have gotten a lörtsy (but those are usually only available in the Savo region of Finland? anybody know?) It's this deep fried pastry that has almost anything you want in it, strawberries, apples, meat, etc. Oh they are to die for! And they only cost about 5-6FIM I believe... I reccomend it highly to anyone... also piirakkas are very good too..

I was in Savonlinna, Helsinki and Turku quite awhile back, in 1992, when I was still living in St. Petersburg, Russia. My parents and I took the Sibelius train out of Finland Station at St. Petersburg. I stayed two days at a hotel in Savonlinna, which is a small town on a lake, then three days with a friend, Virpi, in Helsinki, and two days with another friend, Lena, in Turku.

My impressions: Helsinki and Turku were very clean, and Finns overall very polite. I loved the city public transport system, especially the small above-ground trains in Helsinki. It was really easy to get around. One thing that struck me in particular - from what I saw, Finnish cities are like big shopping malls, with stores EVERYWHERE. Banks as well, which is a good thing, because in Finland, everything seems VERY expensive. Savonlinna is located on a lake, and is more of a resort town - very laid back, with nice scenery, and also very well-kept.

Finnish food seems a bit bland; Finland is well-known for milk products, if nothing else. I had an interesting meal for breakfast while staying in Helsinki - I don't remember the name of it, but it was a big, round cheese-like pattie which my friend Virpi cut into pieces and we ate with cloudberry jam. Really no flavour, but an interesting consistency.

I've flown Finnair on four separate flights, in 1995 - the service was excellent, the food very good, and all flights were on time, with clean planes. Each seat had a fold-down footrest, which I thought was especially nice.

I also spent a good deal of time traveling and studying with a group of Finnish students at the university in St. Petersburg. They were a very polite group, and they tended to drink alot! Almost as much as Russians. I understand there is a big monopoly on alcohol in Finland; big tour buses come over the border each weekend, bringing Finnish tourists so that they can consume large amounts of Russian alcohol, because it is so cheap.

Overall, great airline, great country, and great people!

Theres a Finnish girl in one my clases at school. I can;t remember her name, (I know her though), but no offense she is really unattractive.

Climbout, Finland like many of its geographic neighbors is a fairly homogenous country. All people are really from the same ethnicity, Finnish.

Any blacks there are most probably immigrants from Africa, and Finland like Ireland, Switzerland, UK, and others has been taking in large numbers.

So, thanx for the replies again!

I think Finnish food is really good,of course, because I am finn. There are a lot of African people came as exile to Finland.NOw they have good life here....

If you want learn some finnish, it could be quite difficult.But here is some clauses for you:

IN FINNISH:
Minä olen läski poika!

AND IN ENGLISH:
I am a fat boy!

IN FINNISH:
Puhutko sinä englantia?

AND IN ENGLISH:
Do you speak english?

IN FINNISH:
Jotkut suomen sanat ovat hyvin vaikeita ja pitkiä!

AGAIN IN ENGLISH:
Some of finnish words are very difficult and long!


huh huh....If you want me to translate something, just write it to the forum and I will translate it!



Now I can tell to my mates about how foreign people knows Finns!!!!!!

Thank you very much, and Nokia is the best mobilephone and Detroit Red Wings is the best team in the NHL!!!

Climbout:
Travelling in the Nordic countries as a person of colour is really no problem. Yes, there is racism in places, but only with a few narrow-minded idiots that haven't been out of their farm for the last 50 years.
I know that travelling in Iceland as a coloured person is absolutely no problem at all, in fact, the Icelanders just voted for a song, with an overwhelming majority, to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest in May, and one of the performers is black! And it's highly unlikely that a farmer in Iceland won't let you stay in his house just because you're black. It would be a bit different for him/her, but there aren't any prejudices against skin colour in the travel industry over there. (I got all this info from my b/f, since he's Icelandic, I'm not, unfortunately!)

Anyway, I've been to Finland a few times, I absolutely love the country, the people, SOME of the food (livercasserole, and rieskat Mmmmm!), and basically everything Finnish! Even the language. I even bought a "Teach Yourself Finnish" Pack last time I was in Helsinki (in the Akateminen Kirjakauppa!), but I can't say that I've learnt a lot!

Sergei Fedorov, Vladimir Konstantinov, Viacheslav Fetisov, Vyacheslav Kozlov, Igor Larionov, but now they only have Fedorov and Kozlov  Sad(

Good thing they still have Shanahan, Yzerman and Osgood, though.

Sure, those Lörtsys are sold in many markets around Finland, but only those fresh ones, which can be bought at the squares in the Savo regions of Finland, are the only real ones. The ones sold at the markets can't be even compared with the "real ones."

Let's just hope the Finns don't like lutefisk. Big grin I just can't figure out why much of Scandinavia likes the stuff.  Insane

By the way, I believe that Tallinn is so close to Helsinki that nobody flies conventional planes between the two cities. I believe there is a fast ferry service between the two cities and also a very popular passenger helicopter service (downtown Helsinki to downtown Tallinn in 15 minutes).

Btw. just checket out 2 days ago. They beated St. Louis Blues and became the division leader. Also, it put them into the second place in the whole NHL  Smile Now, that's my Detroit  Big grin

I hate the Finnish skiers, why did they let us down Pissed , first Isometsä(  Pissed ) then Immonen(  Pissed ), and now there's a rumor about Kirvesniemi(  Pissed ) and Jauho(  Pissed ) too! Then the coach for the skijumpers was caught driving drunk!
