The Land of Thousand Lakes.
The thousands of lakes in Finland are the reason why the country's nickname is “The Land of a Thousand Lakes.” A comparison of the number of lakes with its population reveals that there is one lake for every 26 Finns. Water makes up 10% of the land area in Finland. Then two-thirds of the land is made up of forest vegetation. As a result, Finland's scenic beauty is incomparable to most nations in Europe.
