On sport in Finland
Written for Virtual Finland by Joe Brady. Drawing: Pekka Vuori Mika Häkkinen: Finland's Formula One Champion
of the World, 1998 and 1999. The Finns, like any reasonable people, accept that some folk need folk heroes and they do not dismiss fondness for sport and its heroes as a symptom of immaturity. On the contrary, they generally see sport as a commendable form of human endeavour. This may be because in this small society top athletes of either gender tend not to behave like overpaid prima donnas. Even when they are overpaid they remain recognisable to the public as mortals, people who live next door. In the 1920s, the early years of Finnish independence, the dominant sporting hero was the long distance runner, Paavo Nurmi , whose name was turned into that yawn-inspiring sobriquet "the flying Finn." Because he was so famous in his day, his country's name became known, too. This was at the time when Finland needed to establish a presence internationally as an independent sovereign state after the centuries of rule by Sweden followed by the years under Russian domination. The winner of nine gold and three silver Olympic medals in the 1920s, and the holder of a myriad world records, Nurmi was a loner on the track, dour and remote in his prime, introspective and disillusioned with his athletic performances later in life.

Finland: The Foreigner's Guide to Finland
Updated 2003-01-30
This is the authoritative, Official Foreigner's Guide to our fine country. Anyone planning to come here must read this and memorize the facts! You can send comments, suggestions, etc. into my guestbook
The Basics
To the left is the current map of our country. Note that Finland also owns the island of Bornholm Svalbard Islands in the Arctic Sea, the Aleutian Islands on North Pacific Ocean, the islands of Kiribati Line Islands , and Society Islands in Oceania, and a share of Antarctic continent , which are not shown on this map. First thing to know: Finland is not part of Soviet Union, although Russia is a neighbor - so are Sweden and Norway. Only the northernmost Finland is covered by glaciers, and polar bears are not common in the southern part of the country. Reindeer and lapps also live only in the northern part of the land. Even if Finland is not part of Russia, you will still see a lot of russians around. They sell cheap vodka, cigarettes, pirate CDs, videos, DVDs, clothes, and lots of other things, including certain services, at large parking lots in the cities of Southern Finland. You can always trust these honest Russian folk, who sell the products of their country to earn some Finnish marks. First thing you will probably see from Finland is a gray waste of asphalt, an endless parking place, and huge buildings - the airport. But it does look like the environment most of finns live in, the Finnish city.

Culture introduction
Administration ... Topical issues
In the European perspective, modern Finnish cultural life is fairly young. The golden age of Finnish culture began in the late 19th century and went on well into the early decades of 20th century. It was then that Finland "awoke" nationally, underscoring the importance of its own language and culture and creating the basis for the present cultural institutions. Finland became independent in 1917. Finnish cultural policy has been developed systematically since the sixties. The ensuing period marked a rapid growth in the cultural administration. In the nineties, the administrative structures have been streamlined again. The cultural policy of the nineties has highlighted the cultural dimensions of the information society, the utilisation of regional resources, multiculturalism, tolerance and international cooperation. Today the focus is on creativity and the cultural industry.

113. Travel In Finland In The 1870s
Illustrations from the classical Finnish book of the same name by Zachris Topelius.
Written for Virtual Finland by Joe Brady
Illustrations from the book of the same name by Zachris Topelius
T opelius's most durable achievement as a writer was his success in opening the eyes of his compatriots to the heritage and beauty of their homeland. He was the archetypal nineteenth-century enquiring traveller: eyes wide open, observant, keen to learn and to teach. In Travels in Finland, (1873), from which comes our collection of pictures, Topelius's benevolent disposition, and the generous eyes of his illustrators, offered the contemporary reader a bucolic Finland, a land of sturdy, prosperous-looking country folk, tranquil landscapes and picturesque townscapes. This is a fair enough portrayal since the book was the product of journeys Topelius made mainly in the southern half of Finland, the most affluent and populous part of the country, then as now. I n the epilogue to a new edition of Travels in Finland (it appeared in 1998) Pertti Koistinen writes: "Topelius saw it as his duty to make the people of Finland aware of their own nationhood, their own role and their own land. As a journalist, writer and university teacher he wished to create a picture of Finland as the unitary homeland of the Finnish people. This is evident in all of his works but especially in Finland in pictures (1845-52) and Travels in Finland.

The Sami in Finland
Sami flag
Sami - indigenous people of the North
The Sami ("sapmelas" in Sami) are one of the indigenous peoples of Europe, just as the Inuit in Greenland. There are over 75 000 Sami. They have their own history, language, culture, livelihoods, way of life and identity. The Sami homeland ("Sapmi" in Sami) reaches from Central Norway and Sweden through the northernmost part of Finland and into the Kola Peninsula. Thus, Sapmi covers areas belonging to the states of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia. A people is considered an indigenous people, if its ancestors have inhabited the area before it was conquered or settled or before the present borders were drawn. In addition, such a people is to have their distinct social, economic, cultural and political institutions and to consider themselves an indigenous people.
