Finnish cottage life

Midnight sun, Lake Saimaa, and the Finnish cottage life!


If you want to practice the art of silence then come to Finland. You will find tranquility in every corner of this country, even in its cities. But if you want to seek true peace and quiet in true Finnish style then you must experience the Finnish cottage life. And it is not that hard to find it in Finland. Almost every Finnish family owns a cottage. When they are not in the mood for the quiet time which is quite rare or it is absolutely necessary for them to stay away to earn a living in the city, they often rent it out to those who want a slice of their cottage life.
