Have you ever wondered why we Finns do somethings in a certain way but never had a chance to ask about it?

Have you wondered why Finnish school system is so highly appreciated all over the world?

Have you wanted to try some Finnish food - even baking them yourself?

You want to know what this simple Finnish word means: "epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydelläänsäkäänköhän" ?

Now is your chance to do all of that and also many things extra! ESN Lappeenranta presents "The Finnish Evening" on 6th of October 6pm onwards at LUT Beach Sauna.

Finnish evening is a traditional event that has been very popular. We will gather and do all sort of Finnish activities. We will bake together some Finnish goodies: (laskiais)pulla and korvapuusti and serve you some karjalanpiirakka. In addition there will be some other Finnish specialties available.

There will also be a presentation on "Erasmus in Schools"-project, which gives every Erasmus student possibility to do a school visit in the nearby elementary school to have e.g. cooking, art, sports or language lesson with them. 

We will offer you a wide range of Finnish music and maybe even check few videos of typical (?) Finnish behavior and of course what would Finnish evening be without a sauna? We will have not only one but two saunas by the lake for you to enjoy!

This event is totally free of charge and it's only for ESN members. You need to provide your ESNcard on entry. In addition you must register to the event so that we have enough ingredients for our cooking. Click "Get tickets" from the event to register. The registering starts on 1st of October at 3pm onwards. We have space for the first 50 people. 

Our goal is to offer you all our Finnish knowledge and a perfect opportunity to ask all your questions concerning Finnish culture and to get to know each other.

We are looking forward seeing all of you there! For those who haven’t been at the Beach Sauna let’s meet at 17:45 in front of LUT and go there together. 

After the event we will continue the evening at Giggling Marlin in Finnish themed party. Free buses leave from the university at 22:30, 23:00 and 23:30. Stay tuned for more information about the event!
