    Tampere, Western Finland, Finland
    That is a city with lots of factories... I really think it's very industrialized... but anyway, it's a bit beautiful... I liked one big house (I think it was a palace) near to the observation tower... also the cathedral has some interesting art pieces... all the main stuff are very close, in walking distance... :)

    Helsinki, Southern Finland, Finland
    Nice way to get to Helsinki from Stocholm, Sweden is with a ferry that is actually luxus cruiser. They are not very expensive. Over night boats have program, dancing, shops, restaurants, saunas with pools,... and the sights of swedish and finnish arcipelago. Do not forget the famous "meriaamiainen" huge selfservice breakfast buffet.
    You can take the ferry other direction too or a return trip. That way you can spend a night instead of a hotel too.
    Ferrys go to and from Tallin too. But they are a bit smaller and less luxury. But Tallin is worth of seeing if you have more time in Helsinki.

    Vaasa, Western Finland, Finland
    Vaasa is a summer city so you should absolutely have your visit when the sun is shining and weather's warm. Most likely that would mean visiting from mid-June till late-August.

    Hang around the park-like city, spend some time with the locals (who most speak English, Swedish and Finnish and quite a few speak other languages too), enjoy the beaches, check out the islands, go to cafés and so forth.

    You might also want to visit Umeå, Sweden. The boatride costs 60 euro one way for adult at this moment (Jan 2010). See the timely prices at rgline.com

    Kauhava, Western Finland, Finland
    Kauhava is basically in the middle of nowhere with nothing to see or do... but here are some things you could try over there:

    Visit the knife factory, experience the total silence and emptiness during a walk at night (it's like your in a completely dead city), see the Lentäjien juhannus midsummerparty with fighter pilots' show (but don't go to the military base etc. during other times)... For the people who've watched a Finnish movie 'Häjyt', there are a couple of movie sites to visit.

    Talk to people. They are loud and proud.
    You can get here and away in a train, bus or locals' cars.

    Grankulla, Southern Finland, Finland
    A place where some of the wealthiest Finns live. In the small downtown area you'd never guess it but if you go checking out the area villa's it becomes obvious.

    Visit the Työväen Akatemia, a study place of 'working class people' abstractly situated in the middle of the rich people's zone, to meet some nice people who're ready to give you good travelling tips to the capital area and their home areas as well.

    If you dislike it here, no worries. You're in the middle of Espoo city and a spit away from Helsinki.

    Arrive and leave by bus or local train.

    Nivala, Oulu Province, Finland
    A true redneck experience. Countryside, farms, pubs, people picking fights 'cause "you're not from our town".

    One okay-ish gig place with occasional decent bands.

    Getting there and away is done best in private cars.

    Countryside and a downtown the size of blink and you've missed it. Mostly nice people.

    Ranua, Northern Finland, Finland
    Check out the northernmost zoo in the world (yes, you have polar bears there... the only one's in the country) on your way to north or south. Animals are local one's, probably the best selection of them in the country.

    Get in and out in a private car.
