2017 is a major year for celebrations in Finland. After being fought over by Russia and Sweden for 800 years, Finland gained independence in 1917 and is completing a century in 2017. Easter, May Day and Midsummer (the longest day of the year) are the days Finland is on a celebration galore. You get to witness parade on streets, enjoy traditional food and meet new people. In Finland, also get a chance to tick-off The Northern Lights from your list which is truly a spectacular sight, oft compared to the sight of angels watching over us. Also, for our winter sports lovers, this year the country plays host to World Figure Skating Championships and the Nordic World Ski Championships. A city so clean with a peaceful aura, it’s sure to leave most city dwellers in awe.
