Has anybody here been to Finland?

I have been to Finland last year and it didn't quite leave such a good impression on me! I have only seen Helsinki and it was a quick visit as I was actually supposed to arrive to Tallinn. The architecture is quite cold and there are other cities I've seen in Europe that I liked a lot more. Anyway, maybe my impression is wrong. Also, it's really weird that it didn't seem to me that nights are nights completely (it darkends around 12-1 and the light comes back at about 4)..

I've been in Finland quite often as I have friends there. I don't understand much of the language, I know thank you and f..k you :-) The weather is about as here (Norway), but with colder winters and warmer summers as they have more inland climate. I've been there in all seasons, and I would recommend summer or autumn unless you go there to ski. Lots of snow in the winter if the north, but the south is normally quite bleak and dreary.
