I know that they have a nuclear power plant in Olkiluoto. And that they have made an gigantic mine to contain it's waste.
I know that the former F1 World Champion driver is Mika Häkkinen from Finland.
I know that's where "sauna" comes from.
I know they love rally.
And I think that the northern part speaks both Finnish and Swedish. Or it's mandatory to learn Swedish in school?
Oh and that Donald Duck is called "Kalle Anka" or?!!! lol

I know nothing of Finland. Like Lauriet, I have countries of interest that I study, and not much else beyond that.

My world regional geography class has not yet gone over Europe, if I remember correctly. I have learned a lot about culture, news, history, etc around the world, though.

REPLY TO finlux89

in northern finland, most of the people speak finnish and sami. but there are also some swedish speakers. But the western / south western part of finland is mostly swedish area. meaning that there are many swedish speaking finns, finnish-swedish people, and swedish people,.and the street names there are usually in swedish language,.or in both finnish and swedish. Finland is a bilingual country so swedish and finnish are our official languages, and other regional language is Saami, which is spoken in Lapland part of the Finland.


and Donald Duck in finnish is " Aku Ankka " ....Kalle Anka is swedish Donald Duck. ( and yea,..we do read a lot Aku Ankka. )
