Semester Exchange Program
Finland is the sixth largest country in Europe, but with 5.3 million people the population density is low. There are still large areas of untouched nature and hundreds of thousands of lakes: 10% of Finland is covered by water and 70% by forests. But Finland is much more than a nature wonderland; it is a high-tech country and best known for the world's leading mobile phone company, Nokia.
Helsinki is the northernmost capital of the EU and together with its surrounding cities Espoo and Vantaa, a home to about 1 million people. In the capital region modern architecture and commercial districts are in harmony with parks and nature.
The Finnish climate is variable with its four distinct seasons: the fall foliage with infinite colors; snow and freezing temperatures in the winter; magnificent spring when nature awakes after the darkness and cold and of course, the never-ending days turning into white nights in the summer.
