The culture of Spain
What i found of  the Spanish culture is based on a variety of historical influences, which primarily consist of  Ancient Rome, but also the pre-Roman Celtic and Iberian.  While the Finnish culture is based on Scandinavian ancestry. Spain is not just one big land it consists of small islands like Mallorca, the cannery islands and Ibiza, and 11 more. While Finland has one which is Ahvenanmaa. The Fins and the Spanish have somethings in common too, like both like to watch and play sports. Bothe like to drink alcohol. Bothe countries love food.  I also found out that the popularity of Spain is 47,059,533 and Finland has only 5,486,1. A bit of a difference.
I think things that might seem a bit difficult living in Spain would be getting around without getting lost. Communicating in Spanish.
The top 3 attractions I found in Bilbao are

        The Guggenheim museum
It was established  18th of September in 1997. The architect was Frank Gehry. And it is a modern art museum.
 Teatro Arriaga
It was opened 5th June in 1919. It is named after Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga, known in his time as the "Spanish Mozart"
Doña Casilda Iturrizar park
It’s a public park which is located in Basque Bilbao. It is an English-style garden created more than 100 years ago. The park remains one of  the main lungs of the city.

One of the most well-known foods in Spain is “pinchos” or “tapas” It’s finger food that you eat by hand. It is usually consumed as a snack when for example you’re watching  football in a bar or for an appetizer . Sometimes the tapas comes free with your drink.

The top 3 celebrities of Spain ( In my opinion)

1.       Javier Ángel Encinas Bardem
Javier Bardem is a very well-known actor around the world. He has played many roles but some that people know him from are “No Country for Old Men” As the villain. And “ James Bond Skayfall” as the Bond villain.

 Antonio Banderas, is a Spanish actor, director, and producer. He began his acting career with a series of films by director Pedro Almodóvar. He has also been in big Hollywood movies, most well-known for shrek  being the voice of "Puss in Boots" The cat.
