Top 5 Things in which Finland Ranks Highest in the World

Even though Finland is a relatively small country, it has managed to top the world rankings in pretty much everything, from education to life satisfaction ratings. Thus, we’ve decided to gather up a few things at which Finland ranks highest worldwide.

 

1. Education

If you’ve ever heard anything about Finland, you’ve heard that they have the best education system in the world. Finnish schools have consistently stayed at the top of worldwide education rankings. Most of this is due to the fact that Finns have a completely different system from the rest of the world, when it comes to teaching. Students have only 30 minutes of homework, and only 3-4 hours of lessons per day. Moreover, Finland doesn’t have the traditional school subjects such as mathematics or physics! Find out more what studying in Finland is like.

2. Safety

Finland has been ranked as the safest country in the world, because of the extremely low crime rates. It’s also worth noting that the Finns’ trust in their police is the highest in Europe! There’s many other safety-related things where Finland ranks highest, including being the most stable country in the world, best governance in the world, the most independent judicial system, safest banks in the world etc.

 

3. Life satisfaction

Finns are the fifth happiest country in the world! The factors that played a role when calculating this were the GDP per capita, life expectancy, perceived freedom to make life choices and other such things. Finland is also a very desirable destination for women, as it is the second most gender-equal country in the world, and the second-best place in the world for mothers.

4. Health

As mentioned, mothers’ and children’s well-being in Finland are the second-best worldwide, and maternal mortality is the lowest in the world! Furthermore, Finland has the third-lowest mortality rate from cancer. It’s also at the top of the list worldwide for the highest life expectancy at birth.

 

5. Travel

Last but not least, here’s a couple of reasons why visiting Finland would definitely be a good idea.

  • The food here is the cleanest in Europe, so you won’t have to worry about poisoning!
  • Finns drink the most coffee per person in the world, so it’s safe to say the coffee is really good.
  • Finns’ English language skills are the 5th best in the world. You won’t have any problem getting around the country without Finnish.
