Great design and great dining in Fiskars - thisisFINLAND: Practical info: Travelling | Finland | Scoop.it
The industrial village of Fiskars, now home to a flourishing community of artists and craftspeople, offers a delightful destination just over an hour away from Helsinki.

Helsinki: a "liveable" and "futuristic" city

Pete le Roux | Helsinki...

Helsinki is a pretty amazing city – for me one of the best things about it is that once you leave the city centre it is easy to find places that feel remote (it often feels like my bus has taken a wrong turn – how else could I be surrounded by forest?). Other people are also impressed by this city, and over the last few weeks I’ve collected some cool links related to Helsinki – maybe some might be interesting to you too.

Light-speed Santa

Distance travelled by Father Christmas from Korvatunturi to all Finnish homes exceeds that of a trip to the moon and back

 

How is it possible for the Santa Claus of Korvatunturi in Finnish Lapland to visit every home in Finland on Christmas Eve?
Helsingin Sanomat decided to look for an answer both seriously and less seriously.
The work of Father Christmas is made easier if he could move at the speed of light – 299,792,458 kilometres a second. Dr. Tuukka Puranen of the information technology department of the University of Jyväskylä explains what would happen then.
