Least windy city in Scandinavia

Postby Woods » 2016-08-07, 15:13

Do you guys know where in Scandinavia I can find a (relatively big) city with not that much wind? The weather in Copenhagen is awesome but there is sooo much wind and the weather changes so much within the same day that it makes me sick :(

I don't know which forum is the right for this question - it should be either the Swedish or the Finnish one, because in the Danish and Norwegian ones there are not that many people, and Denmark is so windy it cannot be there anyway :)

Probably the flatter, inland cities would be least windy. Helsinki certainly does not qualify, I think it's very windy. Strange thing, but I can't recall whether Turku felt windy or not, even though I lived there two years. However, Vantaa is etched into my childhood memories as a place where warm air stands rather still in silent suburbs. :P It's just inland of Helsinki, and it's usually a couple degrees warmer there in summer than along the coast. I would not call Vantaa a city in the conventional meaning, however. It's a scattered suburb with several urban centers.

I was hoping it would be in Finland, cause I might move there in a few years. Vantaa sounds good :D

Perhaps Kouvola or another city in Kymenlaakso or Karelia. But you must understand that Finland is not Scandinavia, not a Nordic country. Finnish language and culture are not close to Nordic languages or culture, which is Baltic and Uralic. Swedish, Norwegian and Danish are different, they are Germanic. Most of the Finnish vocabulary is Germanic, loaned or inherited, grammar is however completely different and shares more with the Turkic languages and Hungarian than any language of west Europe. Vowel harmony, its pronouns, ancient core words. Please do not make a mistake with this, Finland is losing independence and culture is being erased thanks to this miscategorization. Youth must be educated to condemn Swedish cultural imperialism, socialism and liberalism, if Finns do not want history to repeat and go back to the middle age. When the Nordic pervasion happened the last time, a third of Finns died in famine and genocide. I am sorry to bring politic to this but it is important.

You seem to equate language with culture. Sure, they are closely intertwined, but language can change almost overnight. Finland being a culturally Nordic country and Finnish being a Uralic language are not in contradiction. Finland has been influenced by both West and the East. There's no reason to create a conflict where there is none. Whether Finnish has more in common with Uralic and Turkic languages in terms of grammar is of no consequence.

I have no idea what you're after here, but the days of Swedish cultural hegemony are long gone. And what do socialism and liberalism have to do with any of this?

Ok but then you must understand that is why it is so important, if the Finnish language was removed by Swedish we would malefit.

Finland has democracy, but when babies born to Sweden's royal family the newspeople celebrate. Sweden has monarchy, but it is forgotten if not educated about when only in the news and social media people generate the image of democratic Sweden. If babies were not adorable by nature, the freedom of expression deficiency in Sweden would be condemned when the memory surfaces for the news reports. The leftdom wants communism, rightdom wants monarchy, both are destructive to the democracy.
