My housemate came home and handed me an article from a Danish newspaper that had asked it's readers which countries they liked best.

It came as a surprise to no one that Norway was the runaway winner, because the Danes have historically always been incredibly fond of their old colony.

Second came Germany because the Danes have been working so closely with them, exchanging tourists and what not, that old hate from the war is gone.

It was however a huge surprise that Sweden was number three considering our history and how ill we speak of each other on a daily basis, but it would seem it's all talk and the Danes are warming up to their old nemesis.

When people love eachother they don't want to be seperated, some say that they would build a bridge to be connected.. Well I got news for you.

In Denmark and Sweden, the bridge is usually referred to as Øresundsbroen and Öresundsbron respectively. The bridge company insists on Øresundsbron, a compromise between the two languages. Since the crossing is composed of a bridge, an artificial island and a tunnel, it is sometimes called the "Øresund Link" or the "Øresund Connection" (Danish: Øresundsforbindelsen, Swedish: Öresundsförbindelsen).

Winter War;
“It is known that at least 8,000 Swedes voluntarily went to Finland to fight alongside the Finns. The Swedish government and public also sent food, clothing, medicine, weapons and ammunition to aid the Finns during this conflict. This military aid included: 135,402 rifles, 347 machine guns, 450 light machine guns with 50,013,300 rounds of small arms ammunition; 144 field guns, 100 anti-aircraft guns and 92 anti-armor guns with 301 846 shells; 300 sea mines and 500 depth charges; 17 fighter aircraft, 5 light bombers, 1 DC-2 transport aircraft turned into bomber, and 3 reconnaissance aircraft, totally comprising 1/3 of the Swedish air force at the time.”

I tried to find some research about who the Finns like the most. I didn't find one, but instead I found a research from 2008, according to which Finns trust (after themselves) most to the Swedes. The research was conducted in 16 European countries and was made by the Readers Digest, and it seems that the feeling is mutual, since the Swedes trusted most to the Finns. Beside Swedes, also the Swiss and Austrians thought Finns are the most trustworthy. Finns trusted least to the Russians (and remember, this was in 2008...).

Finns found Switzerland as the most trustworthy vacation destination, at the shared second place came Austria, France and Spain. It seems, that the Finnish cuisine is the least well known in Europe.
