Finland has frequently been ranked as the happiest country in the world. There are a lot of reasons for this, but one of them may be that Finns know how to slow down and relax. After all, Finns invented the sauna. In a country of 5.5 million, there are over three million saunas. In other words, just about every Finn is addicted to löyly, the rush of warmth you feel when water hits the sauna rocks and produces a burst of steam.
No trip to Finland would be complete without enjoying a Finnish sauna. While Finland has an almost limitless number of saunas, the capital Helsinki itself has an impressive selection of public saunas for your experience in Finnish culture.
