INSIDER named Finland the best place to visit in 2019.  The Scandinavian country is full of great food, next-level accommodations and breathtaking nature, so consider adding it to your bucket list this year.

Saunas are a major part of Finnish culture, and the capital of Helsinki even has a sauna attached to a ferris wheel!
