How Far From Suomi to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Suomi to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance from Suomi to:

  • Toronto, which is the Provincial Capital of Ontario, lies 596 miles [959.2 km] to the East Southeast (ESE). If you could drive a straight line from Suomi to Toronto, with an average speed<2>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take just over a day to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 34 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take 24 days.
  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON) is 701 miles [1,128.2 km] to the East (E). Driving would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 28 days and walking would take 40 days.
  • The shortest distance<3> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 5,952 miles [9,578.8 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<4>
  • The distance to Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba) is 6,708 miles [10,795.5 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<5>
  • The distance to the Vatican is 4,623 miles [7,440 km] and it lies to the Northeast (NE).<6>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance starting at Suomi. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Suomi) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Suomi. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Suomi

<2>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.

- Return to Citation

<3>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Suomi to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.

<4>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Jerusalem is 315.893 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<5>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to Mecca is 313.889 degrees.

- Return to Citation

<6>The calculated bearing (or the angle) to the Vatican is 307.831 degrees.
