International Removals to Finland: About Finland
Finland is the most thinly populated country in the whole of the EU with an average of 41 per square mile. It is a country made up of more than 180,000 lakes, a blanket of forests and several small towns.
The country is called the land of a thousand islands and not without reason, as it has just short of 180,000 of these. It is also known as the land of the midnight sun, as the sun does not set in the north during the months of June and July.
Finland was mainly rural until the 1950's after which it was rapidly industrialised. It ranks highly in terms of quality of life and has one of the most comprehensive welfare systems in the world, as well as one of the best educational systems in Europe.
As an expat, it is likely that you will find the Finns as a whole a bit quiet and reserved at first. However, the more you get to know them you will find them warm, welcoming and hospitable.
If you require international removals to Finland, whether for personal reasons or as part of a job move, Greens Removals can take a load off your mind and assist you with your European removals.
