houses in Finland's countryside

Finland is Europe’s eighth largest and the European Union’s most sparsely populated country, surrounded by Sweden on the northwest, Norway up north, and Russia to its east. It’s a rather interesting place in a lot of ways, particularly because of its history – such as being a latecomer to industrialization (1950’s) and being geopolitically neutral – and its unique contributions to the arts, culture, and the humanities such as well-regarded works of literature, works of art in a variety of mediums, and influential contributions to the world of international architecture and design, specifically in the forms of Jugendstil (or Art Noveau), Nordic Classicism, and Functionalism.

Finland has and continues to offer the world far more than just these aspects that have been mentioned, of course, but for the purposes of this article, let’s look at getting to know Finland through these avenues just so we can have a place to start from.
