Finnish Summer

Summer in Finland is beautiful! Midnight sun, sauna combined with swimming in the lake, fishing trips, get together events in summer houses, walks in the forest, biking, the Midsummer celebration. Rich colors, bright sun and tranquility.

People always try to preserve summer somehow – to freeze berries, to marinate mushrooms, to dry flowers. I’ll attempt to do the same, but in a form of a photo roundup. I will savour my warm summer memories during a cold winter 🙂

So, here it goes:

No need to go to New Zealand 🙂 Suomenlinna is a sea fortress located nearby Helsinki. This site has a reach history and is protected by the UNESCO.

  1. Elena, kiitos, että olet vieraillut sivuilamme ja alkanut seuraajaksi. Olet Etelä- Suomessa, me täällä Pirkanmaalla. Kauniita kuvia. Elena, thank you for visiting and following our sites. You are in Southern Finland, we live in Pirkanmaa. It is strange how very often we bump to Kazakstan. First contact was when I saw in TV Ville Haapasalo visiting there.

    1. Moikka! Kiitos teille 🙂 Mieheni on Pirkanmaalta ja käyn usein siellä. I saw some of the episodes of Ville’s show, but haven’t seen the one from Kazakhstan. It’s a really nice country and the nature there is beautiful 🙂
