Welcome to My Finland

Hi You! And welcome to my blog! I'm a adventurous girl from a northern country called Finland. ❄🌙🐺 At the moment I'm quite busy doing my service in the Finnish army which means that I can't be so active in here BUT ollos huoleti ("no worries"), ma' friend! I'll do my best to save some time for posting new stuff every now and then. :)

Oh! And I like to photograph so some of the pictures I put here are taken by me. By Sonja. Have a nice day!

Kalevala - is Finland´s national epic. It is telling about Finnish and Karelian oral folklore and mythology. The Kalevala played an instrumental role in the development of the Finnish national identity, the intensification of Finland´s language strife and the growing sense of nationality that ultimately led to Finland´s independence from Russia in 1917. So it is quite important book for finnish people. ;) It is compiled by Elias Lönnrot and the first version of Kalevala was published in 1835. 

We have one really old Kalevala at home where is original pictures drawn by Akseli Gallen-Kallela. I think it is really nice book so I wanted to take some pictures about it… ;)
