"Learn a bit of Finnish! Also..." Finland Local Custom Tip by KaljaMaha

Finland Local Customs: 156 reviews and 110 photos


Learn a bit of Finnish! Also this is a friendly country towards English-speaking visitors. We learn English second, then Swedish. Unfortunately, a lot of Finns don't like to learn Swedish, thus making a conversation in Swedish a bit hard.

Finns are typically nordic - distant and reserved. Making friends is easier over a beer and over a LONG period of time. Also, make sure you know sauna culture well.
