You’re in Helsinki and want to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city for a day, but a trip to Porvoo also sounds too stressful? No problem 🙂 Several national parks can be reached within an hour by car 🙂
Wooden houses so beautiful that they have been proposed as an UNESCO World Heritage site? Those exist in Porvoo, about an hour east of Helsinki in Finland 🙂
Hell is somewhere in Finland, at least if you believe in Finnish folklore. About 60 kilometres north of Tampere and 15 kilometres from Ruovesi lies the Iso Helvetinjaervi (Great Hell Lake), which together with some other lakes forms the Helvetinjaerven kansallispuisto (Hell Lake National Park).
