Lapland and Helsinki
25 Oct 2013 | From Tuula of Finland
This is one of the first postcards I received from the Facebook Postcrossing Group. Tuula sent me two cards inside an envelope. The cards show a Finnish boy wearing a traditional costume, and the other one, a street in Helsinki.
Lapland is the largest and northernmost of the regions of Finland. Its unique nature, diverse activities and fascinating attractions offer unique holiday experiences throughout the year. Experience the moments of twilight in mid-winter, northern lights, autumn colours and the midnight sun that shines day and night.
Lappi is the Finnish name for Lapland. It borders the Region of North Ostrobothnia in the south. It also borders the Gulf of Bothnia, Norrbotten County in Sweden, Finnmark County and Troms County in Norway, and Murmansk Oblast in Russia.
