Sweat your worries away in Nuuksio National Park 

Saunas are an essential part of Finnish culture. Finland has enough saunas to accommodate all 5.5 million Finns simultaneously since the estimated number of saunas is somewhere between 2 and 3 million! There are several types of saunas, the most common being wood-heated, electric, and smoke saunas.

Can you already imagine how your busy life worries decrease with every drop of water in the Finnish sauna?
