Rovaniemi is the official home of Santa Claus. It is also the financial centre of Finland. The city has a tumultuous past with most of it being destroyed during World War II. Impressive how the city has not only rebuilt itself from that but designed its main streets in the shape of an animal that is very relatable to Finland & Father Christmas; a Reindeer’s head & antlers. The city makes up with gorgeous riverside vistas for a rather plain architecture. A must try while in the city which it thrives on are winter activities such as husky safaris, skiing, ice fishing & many more. The coastal city of Helsinki is the capital of Finland and known to being one of the best cities to live in. The city has a laid back tempo due to the beautiful island setting, lush green gardens and panoramic water bodies yet equally vibrant in terms of the cityscapes and nightlife.
