Wooden towns of Finland are the most idyllic urban areas I perhaps have ever been to. I have seen a fair share of historical and indeed very awe-inspiring classical architecture but while they are definitely fascinating places to visit and be at they still are a far cry from these when talking about what is idyllic and sort of tranquil urban construction.

The Wooden towns of Finland

"In a country of such abundant forests, Finland has been built mostly from wood all the way up to the last century. Still dotting the countryside today exist entire wooden towns that sit nearly as they did decades or even centuries ago.

A visit to one of these historic places is like entering a living time capsule into Finland’s past..."

"The elite order, known as the Vitézi Rend, was established as a loyalist group by Admiral Miklos Horthy, who ruled Hungary as a staunch nationalist from 1920 to October 1944. A self-confessed anti-Semite, Horthy imposed restrictive Jewish laws prior to World War II and collaborated with Hitler during the conflict. His cooperation with the Nazi regime included the deportation of hundreds of thousands of Jews into Nazi hands.
Gorka’s membership in the organization — if these Vitézi Rend leaders are correct, and if Gorka did not disclose this when he entered the United States as an immigrant — could have implications for his immigration status. The State Department’s Foreign Affairs Manual specifies that members of the Vitézi Rend “are presumed to be inadmissible” to the country under the Immigration and Nationality Act."

Do I even need to add anything more?

Ok, I will add this much that the quoted piece above does say that "if these Vitézi Rend leaders are correct, and if Gorka did not disclose this when he entered the United States as an immigrant" and that does give a benefit of doubt.
