Set of values
In Kainuu we are playing for example soccer for fun and for success in the swamps or in the snow. And even if there is no snow Kainuu people are skiing on skis with or without rolls all year round. Kainuu is a relatively sparsely populated area where dozens, even hundreds of kilometers can be passed without any inhabited houses. Winters are long and dark but in the summer there is relatively little snow. I can not explain Kainuu. Its magic and mysticism are to be experienced.
