What is the Culture

Handshaking is the way you greet someone in Finland. You will see that people are a bit closed, it is not that they are being unfriendly. If you visit someone and enter his house, you need to take your shoes off,  it is very common for people in the country to do so. When you come at the table, wait for the toast, your host will say kippis and then you can start eating. Try to dress casually as the people there are dressing in that way all the time.

Many airlines can fly to Finland. The national airline is called Finnair. When you go there you will probably arrive at the Helsinki airport. It is about 19km away from the city. Normaly, it will take you around 25 by car. If you don’t have car at your arrival date, you can take the Finnair bus at the airport or you can take a taxi to the city.

A third option will be the trains. You can book a train ticket in Moscow and get directly to Finland. This option is very interesting because you will see some landscape and you will travel in comfort.
