Some finnish traditions

Finland is an easy country to visit. When meeting, Finns shake hands and make eye contact.

Finns love reading things written about them abroad, and visitors should not feel uncomfortable being asked repeatedly what they think of Finland. It is a country where considerable weight is attached to the spoken word.

Tipping has never fitted very comfortably into the Finnish way of life. Taxi drivers do not expect to get a tip, but customers often pay the nearest rounded up figure to the actual fare.

A growing interest in cooking and wines has led to an increase in entertaining in the home. The home is to a great extent the focus of social life in Finland Ė to a greater extent at least than in countries where it is more common to meet over a meal in a restaurant. Finnish cuisine has western European, Scandinavian and Russian elements. Finns seldom make speeches during a meal, but they do so on formal occasions.
