  • Finland or Suomi is the land of eternal sunshine in the summer, more lakes than you can imagine, and possibly the grossest candy on the planet? Finland is an amazing country to visit and whether it is the breathtaking nature, the kind yet quiet Finnish people, or the endless times you will visit the sauna there will always be things that may shock a tourist when they visit Finland.
    10 Things That Shock Tourists about Visiting Finland
    1. The Sauna Culture: Do expect to head into a sauna during your time in Finland. It is such a part of the culture that people have them built into their homes, and yes do expect to go naked and run out and jump into the snow for a little extra fun.
    2. The Finns Can Talk While Inhaling: the Finns have so much to say when they do talk that they actually can talk while they exhale and while they inhale. Quite a sight when you see it for the first time.
    3. The Natural Beauty of Finland: from the lakes and forests to the parks and islands Finland boasts a ton of nature and the locals love it. So whether it is skiing in Lapland or mushroom hunting or visiting the archipelago islands you will see so much beauty in Finland.
    4. How Quiet the Finns Can Be: the Finns enjoy silence and you will see that in stores, on the street, and especially on public transportation. So do keep it down.
    5. How Clean Finland Is: from pristine forests, to amazing clean and crisp air, to the locals having pride and keeping their cities and towns clean, Finns do love a clean country. Oh, and never wear your shoes in someones house.
    6. Finnish "Tasty" Treats: Salmiakki is the child of black licorice and salt, and I mean that in the least tastiest way possible. The Finns love salmiakki candy (and Finland has a ton of great candy aside form Salmiakki). So be prepared for some great tasty treats, like their cinnamon rolls and anything made with mushrooms and do watch out for the funny ones.
    7. How Difficult the Finnish Language Is: luckily for tourists most Finns speak very good English, so you do not need to speak any Finnish. The Finnish language is considered one of the most difficult languages to learn and when you see all those vowels you will understand why.
    8. The Cities Have Two Names: in Finland, Finnish and Swedish are the two official languages and so all the signs on the highway are in Finnish and Swedish. This can lead to a bit of confusion when the cities don't have similar names in both languages, for example Turku is Turku in English and Finnish, but Abo in Swedish.
    9. Finnish Logic: for as smart and clever as the Finns are some foreigners sometimes get lost in Finnish logic. When you see something around the country that just doesn't quite make sense, just chalk it up to Finnish logic.
    10. You Have to Go to a Government Store to Buy Hard Alcohol: if you want to grab a bottle of Finlandia Vodka in Helsinki you can't just head to the local grocery store. You have to go to Alko, the government run liquor store. The prices are high and the hours are strange, but it is the only place to go.

      KnightLife Except me, I’m Dutch and read about the Finns drinking coffee so much, Well, so do the Dutch, ‘to do a bakkie koffie’ is very important here. Also, the salmiakki is what is known here too. We used to have it as like wooden sticks and as in licoriche. Actually... I got here because of a Finnish song I like so much... 🎶Kun kello kay, taas liian paljon se lyo, on kohta paattynyn yo, taas alkaa arkinen tyo🎶 Don’t know the meaning of the words, but they sound so lovely with all these vowals :)

    Some very Finnish things: 1. Coffee all day long.. Finns are the top coffee drinkers in the world 2. An extra shower head next to a toilet seat. Very handy. 3. Transparency in the Finnish culture: All tax data is open information, you can check how much your neighbor pays taxes. Most fines in Finland are based on your taxable income, you can be fined tens of thousands for speeding. The rich boys drive like old ladies in Finland.. ;)

      Then again, the nature's mostly just monotonous flat forest country. And only a small percent of the forests are kept in their actual natural shape. The rest is "industrial forest" maintained and pruned for easy wood extraction for the paper industry and so on. So although you have the right to camp almost anywhere, you are better off picking a specific natural park or conservation area for your camping and other nature stuff. Just friendly advice.

    You missed the ice cream which they eat it all year round even when it's -20c and gaming machines which, in Helsinki at least, seem to be everywhere and people would queue to use them. I also noticed Finns will take every opportunity to sit outside and drink coffee. In the summer when it is hot, I understand, they are making the most of the warm summer days, but even late Autumn and early Winter when there is snow on the ground you see Finns wrapped up in their warm coats and hats sitting outside a cafe drinking coffee.

      That's true. As a Finn I used to play those machines when I was young but not anymore. Some older people play too much those gambling machines and are addicted to them. I would take the machines out of the stores because now it's too easy to put your money on those. Good thing with those are that the money goes to the charity or supporting childs sport.

      Finnish definition of gambling is a game where the bet is oversized incomparison to players wealth and possibility on winning. There's a state owned betting business that gives its profits to charities. The machines are rigged go give back most (80-90%) of the money put in to then. It's small money (largesr bets are 1€), which makes them not gambling in finnish law

    • @Sirapa7

      I would also really wish that those machines were put off from the shops and even bars. I donot know why people are so obsessed with those machines and its sad that It affects a lot of young people, I myself know so many who are addicted to it and lost almost all of their salary in it. I really think that Finnish government should do something about those gambling machines. Also I am aslo so shocked by the amount gambling machines there are in only Helsinki region. I think they should be available only inside casinos and limited restricted areas.

    We don't usually even use "hän" (he/she) in regular everyday conversations. When we're talking about someone who we know well (or don't!) we usually crudely say "se" (it), even if it's about a person. It just works better, because "hän" often sounds too formal. Examples: 1. "Missä se taas viipyy?" (Where is it lingering again?) 2. "Kuka se oli?" (Who was it?) 3. "Sen nimi on Matti." (Its name is Matti.)

      I don't know why exactly, but that reminds me of school many years ago, where in English class, we were divided into groups of 2-4 students and to converse in English. Me and another buddy were probably the most reserved people there, and so, we sat for minutes without saying anything and gazing idly around at the others who had broken the ice. Naturally, the teacher noted us and came over to encourage us. When his proposals and cajoling was met with aversively mumbled refusals, his grand idea was to imagine us being on a 12 hour train ride; we'd start talking sooner or later. He gave up on us when I said: "Were Finnish. We can be silent for 12 hours."

In supermarkets, shopping centres, restaurants they are everywhere! And the inhaling thing is the first thing I noticed when I got here too! I even asked people why they do that and they didn't even realise they did it!

    I lived with a Finn for 15 years until he died of liver disease, so none of these really shock me. What I did find shocking about my husband was that his reserved, grizzled, and stoic exterior masked a passionate, intense, and rather raunchy side that he did not let out in public. You could compare him to salmiakki, sweet and salty at the same time...incidentally, I really rather like salmiakki!

    I’m of 100% Finnish ancestry. Apparently a lot of Finns settled here in the upper peninsula of Michigan . I remember juustoa( Finnish cheese )and suolakala (raw salt salmon) as unique treats. My parents sometimes poured their coffee in the saucer and drank it from there to cool it off. We call Finnish logic “Finn-genuity”. Best of all.... Finnish SISU...(their inner strength pride ,spunk and endurance). I wish I could travel there. This year Finland was found to have the most satisfied happiest people in the world! Apparently their wages ,health care and education systems are the greatest in the world! I wish the USA would take a few pointers from the Finns! Thanks I loved your video!

      yea I have read a lot about finns who went to americas to start a new life, apparently in some areas they were given the shittiest of lands. but finns were like "this is okay" and then just cleaned up the boulders and trees and turned it into a farm land. also some areas were close to indian reserves and surprisingly enough the culture was similar so now there is a lot of mixed with finns and indian ancestry.
      also I watched a documentary about finns being settled to alaska, that was a total shitshow, they got totally fooled by the american government. later it even turns out they were supposed to be the defending force of alaska if russia decided to invade there. they had even planned jews first but decided to go with finns. sibelius had been made a house there, but it was total theater act. he never visited there unless there was some quests which visits were filmed. otherwise I think he actually lived in the real states, in some city in a hotel and called alaska a really shitty place. which it was, no way could anyone farm there when the soil is more dead than mars.
      after the forced labor years passed, many of the finns returned to finland while some crazy ones staid in alaska. I think some towns formed around their fishing ports, but it wasnt some dream land that was promised to them, it was a frozen hellhole that only looked like finland.

I was in an exchange program one summer in New Hampshire, and I remembered an American friend told me that he thought Paris was in London, and we were 19 yr old at the time... it was shocking how ignorant some American teenagers could be.
