Hanko & Finland
Finland the land of thousand lakes, home of Santa Claus and paradise for sauna lovers. Yes it is real and not conspiracy myth (quite convincing one though).
Finland is relevantly small country with population of 5,4 million people but is has a lot to offer. So if you thinking of traveling before or after the EJC do research a bit of your options to make most of it. Finland is after all second best and also the happiest country in the world.
Even if you don’t have time or means to travel around Finland you should not worry, because Hanko our lovely host city (well, let’s be honest 8400 population isn’t a city hardly even a town) of the EJC 2020 is the one of the best places to visit during the summer in Finland. Hanko is a beautiful seaside town at the southernmost part of Finland and beeing located on a peninsula with a shoreline of over 30 km. Hanko is also situated in the bilingual area of Finland, with half of the residents speaking Swedish as their mother tongue. There are lots of activities to engage in, from swimming, canoeing and surfing to wall climbing and exploring nature trails by foot or by bike.
Hanko is a popular city to visit during the summer time so if you want to do something that is not part of the EJC or you want to have separate accommodation make sure that you start to book now.
