In 2018 when United Nation’s World Happiness Report selected Finland as the happies country in the world for the first time, most Finns dismissed it as ridiculous. Finnish people identify themselves as hard working and serious people, and see optimism as a mental disorder. We, the happiest country in the world? Nonsense!
But as the UN report repeated the selection three times in a row, Finns began to wonder. And as one would expect, a serious nation took upon itself to investigate the matter thoroughly and has now made peace with the conclutions without having to intirely change it’s identity.
In a walking tour in Helsinki city centre you’ll find out what is Finnish happines made of and how did this country become as happy as it is today
