Finland (Finnish Suomi), a republic in Northern Europe, is mainly inhabited by Finns (93.4%), Sweden (5.6%) and (in Finnish Lapland) around 6,000 Sami. Finland is rich in lakes, forests and moors and has a cool, humid climate. In the south potatoes, beets and grain are grown, dairy farming, reindeer and fur farming are important. In addition to the metal industry, there are wood processing, chemical, food and textile industries.
History: Between the 2nd and 8th centuries AD, Finnish tribes (coming from the Baltic States and the East) settled in southern and central Finland. After Christianization Finland became in the 12./13. Century part of the Swedish Empire. Since the end of the 15th century, the country was a constant battleground between Sweden and Russia, which was able to conquer all of Finland from 1721-1809. Finland gained independence in 1917. Through the wars of 1939/40 and 1941-44 against the Soviet Union, Finland lost Vyborg with West Karelia and Petsamo (today Petschenga). After 1945 Finland pursued a conflict-free relationship with the Soviet Union, but oriented itself economically and socio-politically towards its Scandinavian neighbors and the Western European states. In 1995 Finland became a member of the European Union.

The influence of the Gulf Stream is hardly noticeable in Finland, so that the climate is continental except for the coastal region. The winters are long and severe, with a permanent blanket of snow that is only interrupted in the south by individual periods of thaw. The short summers, on the other hand, are relatively warm. The north has subpolar features with its dark winters, cold spells in spring and the midnight sun in summer. Average annual temperature in Helsinki: 5.4 ° C. The warmest month (warmer than in the southern outskirts of Scandinavia) is July with an average of 14.5 ° C, the coldest month is February with −9 ° C (northern Finland −12 ° C). The extreme values reach 30 ° C across the country in summer, while temperatures at the northern border drop to below -40 ° C in winter.
