Saimaa Loveliest in Finland - Vintage Travel Poster

This is one of our absolute favourites. Why? Because it's Finland in a nutshell.

Finland IS Lakeland. And you can still hop on the boat (the boats looks exactly the same today) at the harbours in cities like Kuopio and Savonlinna. And what a ride! It's you and the lake - for a full 10 hours.

This poster was published as an official stamp by the Finnish postal company in 2012, thanks to the Come to Finland-project.

Artist: Paul Söderström (1910–1999) & Göran Englund (1911–1940)

Published: 1939

Poster size: 64 x 100 cm
