Posters – with passion
Welcome! Come to Finland is all about Finnish travel posters and travel history.

Finland = glamour, style and wildernessToday many sharp brains try to figure out how Finland should brand itself. There is a lot of talk, but in the old days they did not only talk, they also created.
They created an image of Finland as the country of glamour, trendiness and romance (we kid you not! One slogan was actually "Finland – land of romance").
French celebrationWhen the French version of Come to Finland was published, we celebrated with a virtual show, enjoy! Show Cap sur la Finlande (Flash).
