Cathedral of light
Finland

Text from http://valonkaupunki.jyvaskyla.fi/english

Jyväskylä’s long-term and fruitful efforts as a developer of urban lighting have been acknowledged around the world. Autumn 2012 will bring lighting professionals from 30-40 countries to Jyväskylä to explore the city’s outdoor lighting strategy, which has won international awards.

Every autumn Jyväskylä hosts City of Light, Finland’s only event dedicated to urban lighting. The event provides both residents and visitors with a chance to learn about, experience and enjoy the city’s lighting, including a number of special lighting installations. See the program here.

The City of Light 2012 event will be accompanied by the Lighting Urban Community International (LUCI) seminar ”City under Microscope”. At the event lighting experts from different parts of the world will develop an acquaintance with lighting in Jyväskylä through various seminars, workshops and on-the-spot visits. Simultaneously Jyväskylä will host a ”Lighting in Green Areas” seminar, which is expected to attract approximately 100 landscape designers and builders.

More About Finland

Finland is the jam. It came from an exploding egg, the egg of a water bird, the top half of which you can still see in the shape of the starry canopy that hangs over the earth.Finland is the most sparsely-populated country in the EU with only 5 million people. It's also been ranked the second most stable country in the world, after Norway.Historically, Finland has been a part of Sweden and later, Russia. It was an autonomous Grand Duchy during the Russian Empire's reign and lasted as such until their declaration of independence in 1917. Subsequently Finland survived a civil war and wars against both Russia and Nazi Germany to eventually settle down as an EU member circa 1955.Finnish language is cool, it's totally unrelated to the whole Latin-root thing. Its closest relative is Hungarian. Linguistic historians estimate that it came from northern central Russia from 3000BC.If you're in Helsinki, the museum at Suomenlinna has some interesting bunkers and military wreckage, including a submarine!Caught on camera! Here's your long-awaited proof. Santa Claus comes from Finland.Apart from Lappland, the other thing most people are familiar with out of Finland is aquavite. Literally it translates to "water of life" but it may make you feel more like you are dying when it hits your throat.Text by Steve Smith.
