What a beautiful place! I imagined Sweden and Germany must have been like that when my ancestors left those countries.

Re: If you don't mind


If you want to know where exactly this is, find "Mänttä" in google maps. We're in Street View too, look around my hometown.

Re:


I did the Google Map and I found Mänttä, Finland. I did the street view and moved all around too. On the street view map you can click the button "Photos" and you'll see a still picture gallery of about 20 thumbnails that you can enlarge.

Pretty big city with large 3 story buildings, I think there is a restriction of keeping buildings at no more than 3 stories tall.

I saw no traffic signals or stop signs and cars drive on the right.
Very skinny poles for the street lighting.

It's a nice, clean, no frills city.

Re: If you don't mind


Younger than my age for sure.

I think there really is some rule on over three story buildings (or four depending how you count) in city plan. Not that we have any need for new buildings.
I can think about 15 higher buildings here. The six where I live (7 stories) near main street, a group of eight bit further away (7?) and one older (4/5 stories).

I wish you would put at least a few actual pictures in this thread. It would whet people's appetites and we would also have a few pictures safely here.

Re: If you don't mind


We have a different definition of "swamp". The Finnish word means bog. I don't think we have swamps in the sense of warmer climates, we just have lakes, rivers and ponds.
Though there's plenty of bog or swamp by any definition around the area that pic's from.

Re: If you don't mind


Yep, this is a factory town. Until late 19th century here was only a very small village. Then a visionary/nut case industrialist named Serlachius made a paper factory here (anyone ever seen "Serla" brand paper products?) and he and family run it until 1980's, being great patrons of this town; their art collections are basis of the remarkable museums we have today.

And as this town exists due the factory, I exist due the town: my parents came from neighboring towns and I was born here.
Dad worked some 30 years at the factory.

(The first pic of those earlier ones is the oldest remaining part of the original factory.)
