Southern Finland oscillates between marine landscapes, historic towns and luxuriant nature of the boreal taiga. There is also the Finnish capital : Helsinki. Nicknamed "Daughter of the Baltic", it is today the political, economical and cultural center of the country. All southern towns and villages in Finland have a rich cultural heritage testified by churches, castles and fortresses in this area. This territory is also marked by the Great Lakes region, the typical wooden cabins and the Finnish sweetness of life.
