What is Finland's motto? 1747 16.09.2001 Do you mean the competition "A motto for Europe", which was arranged by French journal Ouest France? Finland's suggestion was "Perheenä Eurooppa - kotina maailma". In English: Our family is Europe - our home is the world. Finland as a country has no official motto. Sometimes we use three words beginning with S :"Sisu, Sauna and Sibelius" . Sisu is hard to translate, it is something like courage and perseverance, sauna is the Finnish bath and Sibelius is the famous Finnish composer. But this saying is informal!

Dear librarians I'm a journalist in Switzerland, writing an article about libraries in Finland. I have a few questions to ask: 1. Finland has about 930 public… 4647 22.08.2001 The figure (930) you suggested is correct and does not - as you rightly surmised - include any of the university or research libraries or those of other institutes of higher education. As to the reason why Finnish people read as much as they do, it is very difficult to give any definitive answer. However, the nature of the Finnish education system which relies heavily on the services provided by the public library system may go some way of explaining the phenomenon. In other words, children learn to use libraries at a relatively young age. All this emphasises the fact that reading as such has always been highly valued in Finland. Also that fact that parents read to young children during the long and dark winter may likewise be a…

Is there information as to the construction and installation of the clock in the tower of the Helsinki train station ? Thank you. 533 30.07.2001 Very little information about the clock could be found in books or in the internet. In the book Högström Hilkka: Helsingin rautatieasema - Helsinki railway station (ISBN 951-53-0533-0) is the following chapter: "The Siemens-Schuckert electrical company installed the German clockwork for the Helsinki Railway Station tower. Originally the weights had to be cranked up daily by hand. The dial was made by a Finnish workshop (Oy Arvo Urho). In the 1930's, an electric rewinding apparatus was installed, and in 1980 the clock was coupled with a quart-controlled central mechanism. ...Over the years, travellers have liked to bet on the tower's dimensions.
