Great Medical care. Very Safe. The most pedestrian and bicycle friendly country I have ever been to. Locals are very active in sports/fitness all year round. It's central location in the Baltic Sea makes it convenient, cheap, and quick to travel to any country in the Baltic, Central Europe, and Eastern European countries. Neighboring countries can be reached by rail, ship, or air, quickly, conveniently, and cheaply. The cleanest country I have ever been to. Tap water tastes like bottled water. The public transportation system of trolleys, buses, and trains is very efficient and convenient. Unfortunately, it is very expensive. A 20-minute taxi ride will cost you approximately 50 Euro. - Jul 2012
