Finnish Forest Research Institute, Helsinki Research Centre
Lake Pielinen and Koli. Photo: Hannu Vallas N urtured in a Western cultural tradition, Johan Vilhelm Snellman (1806-1881), the progenitor of the Finnish language, culture and currency, was of the opinion that the forests of Finland should be felled and the money used to develop agriculture. As far as he was concerned, this was the only way for the Finns to gain inclusion among the civilised nations and to rid themselves of the stigmas of barbarism, lack of civilisation and drunkenness. S nellman wanted to see Finland follow in the footsteps of the other European countries, which had developed their culture against an agricultural background, but cultural history did not repeat itself in the case of Finland. Snellman failed to comprehend the might of industrialisation. T he sawmills and pulp and paper mills had the effect of multiplying C ulture and education have not, however, done away with the "backwoods heritage" so abhorred by Snellman. Examples of this are to be seen in the novel "

  • You are familiar with many TV personalities and celebrities, Finnish and foreign. The latter are, in decreasing order of probability, American, English, Scandinavian (rarely), French or German (very, very rarely). You believe in the news on TV and in the newspapers. In fact, you are used to believing in most of what you read or hear people are supposed to "say what they mean" or remain silent. You have (or you plan to have) a family, which means a spouse and 1 to 3 children (but not having one doesn't mean a catastrophe). It's possible that you are a single or divorced parent, even a mother who has never wanted to marry or live with the father of her child(ren). You may state that "old people should be respected", but you know you don't have to obey your parents, at least not if you are over 18.

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.

Kalevala - The Finnish National Epic
Finnish culture at the beginning of the 1800s Written for Virtual Finland by Anneli Asplund,
The Kalevala Society, the Finnish Literature Society The status of the Finnish language left much to be desired during the period of Swedish rule (-1809). The language used in schools and universities was either Swedish or Latin, and the language of state administration was Swedish. Only the ordinary peasants in the countryside spoke Finnish, and the only publications to appear in Finnish were some legal texts and religious literature. By the end of the 1700s, however, there was already a small group of students at Turku University who were familiar with the ideology of National Romanticism. These students realized that the language of the common people, as well as folklore collection and publication, were crucial to the development of a uniquely Finnish culture.

Mainpage Culture Literature Culture introduction ... Topical issues L ITERATURE Literature has always been an important part of Finnish culture. Finns are avid readers, largely owing to the excellent library system. The national author is Aleksis Kivi, who published his main work The Seven Brothers in 1870. F. E. Sillanpää won the Nobel Price in Literature in 1939. National literature organisations and other actors in the cultural field also receive subsidies. The overall state aid for literature amounted to EUR 5,4 million, excluding library funds. Small-circulation literature is subsidised by means of a specific aid system. The Ministry of Education supports the publication of easy-to-read literature for the needs of people with different disabilities or reading difficulties, the elderly and migrants. There are two authors' organisations in Finland: the Union of Finnish Writers and the Society of Swedish Authors in Finland.

11. The Finnish Culture
The finnish culture does not contain the US hypocricy nor the Brittish small talkbullshit. An important issue is the attitude to alcohol.
Of all cultures, ever even for a second spotted on this tiny planet of ours, the Finnish is superior. The complete and unconditional respect for personal freedom, shown by, for example, the famous Finnish elevator behaviour and the almost magic Finnish silence, is something very special. The Finnish culture does not contain the US hypocricy nor the Brittish small talk-bullshit. An important issue is the attitude to alcohol. Getting drunk is not something typically Finnish, although it's rather common in Finland, since it's being done all over the world. The only difference is that our superior culture allows us to do in the restaurant what other people have to do at home, perhaps with the kids wathing. What is wrong with being loaded like a freight train and what does it help to hide it in the closet? Typical for Finns is also the sence for fairness - noone should be worse off than the others. In Finland this is achieved by making sure that noone does any better than the others: a tax system that doesn't encourage working and even heavier taxes for those who actually work. Very typical is also that artists who making a career abroad always get backstabbed at home - "He's actually a jerk" or "The success has really got to her". As said before, noone should have it any better than than the others... The perhaps best proof is the Finnish attitude to urination in the street. People take a pee in a street corner every single day in every larger city in the world, but it is done only in the poor neighborhoods, where you're certainly able to smell it. In Finland it is spread around the city, mostly around bushes, trees, lawns and other similar places where fertilizers, in fact, are needed. This way it doesn't even smell! What's that to be ashamed of, isnt't it worse to use billoins of gallons of water to flush the toilet after a pee?

Finnish alcohol culture
Alcohol has been a part of Finnish culture for as long as there have been Finns. The should go for almost every culture. Our companionship with beer, spirits and wine has not been something one would describe as culture. It has been straightforward "boozing". This situation evolved simply because of Finland's location and the sub- artic or temperate weather. Before greenhouses there was no way to grow wine grapes in Finland and so wines were a rare commodity. Luckily the land could be cultivated and of course some of the crops ended up being distilled to provide beer and spirits. According to the famous beer expert Michael Jackson (not the black/white one) , the oldest variety of Finnish beer called "sahti" is one of the oldest beer styles in the world. This beer style is still in production. Despite the popularity of different beer styles in Finland also home distilled ("moonshine") spirits were common until the home distilling was banned. The culture before the law the legislated all alcohol was nothing sort of plain drinking until the drinker collapsed into drunk slumber. Misuse and massuse of alcohol was a major social problem in the early 20th century. Spirits were almost free when home distilled and beer, or sahti, was more a drink of the ladies and children. The prohibition did not receive wide support from the masses. But those who wished to abolish alcohol completely from the Finnish culture had the support of the high society folk and the members of the Finnish Parliament were quite easily dissuased to outlaw alcohol.

Pääsivu History of Finland Links WARNING ... Sweden
Association of Finnish Culture and Identity
The Association of Finnish Culture and Identity , also known as the Finnish Alliance , is a Finnish cultural organization. The official name of the Association is in Finnish Suomalaisuuden liitto , in German Verband für das Finnentum e. V. and in French La Ligue Finlandaise The Finnish Alliance was founded by writer Johannes Linnankoski in 1906. The founding date was the 100th anniversary of J.V. Snellman , a prominent national Finnish philosopher and statesman. The purpose was and is still today to awaken and to strengthen the sense of national identity, to promote Finnish education and culture. A significant goal is to cultivate the Finnish language.
One of the most far-reaching manifestations of the Finnish Alliance's activities was the mass fennification of family names in 1906-07. This was repeated in 1935-36 with the result of more than 200,000 people changing their family names into Finnish. The Association of Finnish Culture and Identity has played a remarkable role in Finnish cultural life. It provided the initiatives which led to the creation of the Fund for the Promotion of Finnish Literature (Suomen kulttuurirahasto), Suomi-Seura (an organization to unite the Finns abroad), and the Finnish Family Planning Association (Väestöliitto).

      Christ to Bishop Hemming, in St Birgitta, Revelationes I.52
    Bishop Hemming and St Birgitta, Urdiala, Finland
D uring many of her Revelations, St Birgitta of Sweden (1303-1373) heard Christ and the Virgin reveal the will of God, which she was to pass on to secular and clerical rulers, as well as to common people. These messages often fiercely urged their recipients to repent so that their souls would be saved from divine anger, and God's peace could rule the world. The spiritual messages were intertwined with visions for the practical reform of the church and secular kingdoms, which in Birgitta's day were troubled by wars, the Papacy's dislocation in Avignon (1309-1377) and epidemic of the plague later known as the Black Death (1347-1351). Bishop Hemming and Prior Peter made their journey between 1346 and 1349. Their mission was to deliver to the Pope Birgitta's Revelation which lamented the decline of the Papacy. This Brigittine Revelation urged the Pope to reform his own lasciviousness, to cease supporting the King of France, and to return the Papal See to Rome. In Birgitta's Revelation Christ spoke directly to Clement:
    It will not remain a secret how at your time greed and ambition flourished in the Church, and how many things you could have reformed and improved, but you, lover of the flesh, balked.

    A dip into Finnish culture
    Hanna Nevalainen
In the midst of the July heat, when the whole of Finland seems to be on holiday, there are some who keep toiling away. In Helsinki these include young foreigners who have chosen to spend their summer holidays delving into the perplexities of Finnish grammar and Finnish culture.
The course takes three weeks, and the seat of learning is the University of Helsinki, a place echoing emptiness in July. The days are spent in intensive study. In the morning, the students sit in class, in the afternoon attend lectures, and in the evening do their homework. Weekends are dedicated to excursions. The whole course is topped off with a fairly extensive project written in Finnish, which the students present in class. This advanced course in Helsinki is one of the many summer courses in Finnish language and culture organised by the Centre for International Mobility CIMO and Finnish universities. This year there are altogether 250 students attending courses arranged all over Finland. These courses in Finnish culture and language have been on offer since 1963. They are intended for students living permanently outside Finland, mainly those studying Finnish or linguistics. Hungarian

    Welcome to Uralic Family Home Page. The Uralic Family of languages is comprised of two branches: 1) Finno-Ugric, and 2) Samoyedic. The Finnish/Karelian and Estonian (Finnic), and Hungarian (Ugric) people belong to this distinct group of linguistically and culturally related northern people. There are also more related groups in the former Soviet Union, most of which are quickly being assimilated into the dominant Russian language and culture. Finnish culture, which is the main focus, is very Scandinavian in style, but Finno-Ugric origins make the people distinct in many ways. Who are the Uralic people? Where did they come from? Where do they live? What is their language and culture like? This web page explores these and many other questions relating to Uralic people: their past, present and future. Pictures and maps are used extensively to illustrate.
