Yes, you read that right, the cemetery! Finns believe that cemeteries are the closest place to heaven, so their cemeteries are very beautifully decorated and very humane. Each cemetery is a representative of the family's aesthetics, some decorative sculptures, and some flowers often bloom. Here, you will not be surrounded by the fear of death, on the contrary, you will be filled with the joy of life. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from the city center. It is a recommended place to visit.
Inside you can find the cemetery of historical Finnish figures and the mass cemetery of soldiers who died in the Finnish Civil War. When there is no one on the streets on Christmas Eve, many Finns can be seen here bringing red and white candles to visit their loved ones. Soldiers wear traditional winter field uniforms to guard the graves of the fallen soldiers all night. In summer, this place is more like a peaceful garden. If you have the opportunity to live here, you can try to apply for the job of planting flowers and weeds in the cemetery in summer. The pay is very high.
The greening is very delicate, with flower beds and various trees. Some tombstone designs are also very creative, with a large overall area.
