Finland is probably best known for Nokia mobile phones, but also for its beautiful nature; vast forests and thousands of lakes. Finland has four special seasons, all with special beautiful features. The weather both in summer and winter time has its own exotic attraction; winter with snow and magical northern lights and summer with long, bright days when the sun does not set for several weeks. Autumn colours are especially beautiful on and around the fells of Lapland and spring is time of explosion of growth after the long winter.
Finland is a participant in the European single currency, so its monetary unit is euro (EUR), divided into 100 cents. Time in Finland is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
