The main reasons to visit Finland are to see the amazing natural scenery and to experience the unique culture. Finland is known for its beautiful lakes and forests, and there are also many interesting museums and architecturally significant buildings to see. Finnish culture is unique in many ways, and one of the most noticeable is the importance placed on personal space and silence.
