Finland rapidly industrialized after World War II, achieving GDP per capita levels comparable to that of Japan or the UK in the beginning of the s.
Initially, most of the economic development was based on two broad groups of export-led industries, the "metal industry" metalliteollisuus and "forest industry" metsäteollisuus.
The "metal industry" includes shipbuilding, metalworking, the automotive industry , engineered products such as motors and electronics , and production of metals and alloys including steel , copper and chromium.
Many of the world's biggest cruise ships , including MS Freedom of the Seas and the Oasis of the Seas have been built in Finnish shipyards.
However, in recent decades, the Finnish economy has diversified, with companies expanding into fields such as electronics Nokia , metrology Vaisala , petroleum Neste , and video games Rovio Entertainment , and is no longer dominated by the two sectors of metal and forest industry.
Likewise, the structure has changed, with the service sector growing, with manufacturing declining in importance; agriculture remains a minor part.

In , Finland was the first Nordic country to disestablish its Evangelical Lutheran church by introducing the Church Act, followed by the Church of Sweden in Although the church still maintains a special relationship with the state, it is not described as a state religion in the Finnish Constitution or other laws passed by the Finnish Parliament.
As an autonomous Grand Duchy under Russia —, Finland retained the Lutheran State Church system, and a state church separate from Sweden, later named the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland , was established.
It was detached from the state as a separate judicial entity when the new church law came to force in After Finland had gained independence in , religious freedom was declared in the constitution of and a separate law on religious freedom in Through this arrangement, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland lost its position as a state church but gained a constitutional status as a national church alongside the Finnish Orthodox Church , whose position however is not codified in the constitution.

Graduation from either formally qualifies for tertiary education. In tertiary education, two mostly separate and non-interoperating sectors are found: the profession-oriented polytechnics and the research-oriented universities.
Education is free and living expenses are to a large extent financed by the government through student benefits.
There are 15 universities and 24 Universities of Applied Sciences UAS in the country. Forest improvement, materials research, environmental sciences, neural networks, low-temperature physics, brain research, biotechnology, genetic technology, and communications showcase fields of study where Finnish researchers have had a significant impact.
Finland has a long tradition of adult education, and by the s nearly one million Finns were receiving some kind of instruction each year.
Forty percent of them did so for professional reasons. Adult education appeared in a number of forms, such as secondary evening schools, civic and workers' institutes, study centres, vocational course centres, and folk high schools.

There is an old Finnish saying: "Jos sauna, terva ja viina ei auta, on tauti kuolemaksi. Moreover, nearly all Finnish houses have either their own sauna or in multistory apartment houses, a timeshare sauna.
Public saunas were previously common, but the tradition has declined when saunas have been built nearly everywhere private homes, municipal swimming halls, hotels, corporate headquarters, gyms, etc.
At one time, the World Sauna Championships were held in Heinola , Finland, but the death of a Russian competitor in finally stopped organizing the competitions as too dangerous.

Written Finnish could be said to have existed since Mikael Agricola translated the New Testament into Finnish during the Protestant Reformation , but few notable works of literature were written until the 19th century and the beginning of a Finnish national Romantic Movement.
This prompted Elias Lönnrot to collect Finnish and Karelian folk poetry and arrange and publish them as the Kalevala , the Finnish national epic.
The era saw a rise of poets and novelists who wrote in Finnish, notably Aleksis Kivi The Seven Brothers , Minna Canth Anna Liisa , Eino Leino Helkavirsiä , Johannes Linnankoski The Song of the Blood-Red Flower and Juhani Aho The Railroad and Juha.
Many writers of the national awakening wrote in Swedish, such as the national poet J. After Finland became independent, there was a rise of modernist writers , most famously the Finnish-speaking Mika Waltari and Swedish-speaking Edith Södergran.

Architect Alvar Aalto is regarded as among the most important 20th-century designers in the world;  he helped bring functionalist architecture to Finland, but soon was a pioneer in its development towards an organic style.
Much of Finland's classical music is influenced by traditional Karelian melodies and lyrics, as comprised in the Kalevala.
Karelian culture is perceived as the purest expression of the Finnic myths and beliefs, less influenced by Germanic influence than the Nordic folk dance music that largely replaced the kalevaic tradition.
Finnish folk music has undergone a roots revival in recent decades, and has become a part of popular music. The people of northern Finland, Sweden, and Norway, the Sami , are known primarily for highly spiritual songs called joik.
The same word sometimes refers to lavlu or vuelie songs, though this is technically incorrect. The first Finnish opera was written by the German-born composer Fredrik Pacius in In the s Finnish nationalism based on the Kalevala spread, and Jean Sibelius became famous for his vocal symphony Kullervo.

During the decade, some progressive rock groups such as Tasavallan Presidentti and Wigwam gained respect abroad but failed to make a commercial breakthrough outside Finland.

According to the statistics, red meat consumption has risen, but still Finns eat less beef than many other nations, and more fish and poultry. This is mainly because of the high cost of meat in Finland.
Finland has the world's highest per capita consumption of coffee. There are several holidays in Finland, of which perhaps the most characteristic of Finnish culture include Christmas joulu , Midsummer juhannus , May Day vappu and Independence Day itsenäisyyspäivä.
