Enkelilahti, Finland

Finns should found a new city. In Turku archipelago, near the city Sauvo, approximately on this spot, and name it Angel Bay, Enkelilahti.




Well, below is a great circle, the shortest path on the surface of a sphere, between Arkhangelsk, Russia, and Ängelholm, Sweden.
Arkhangelsk is commonly known as Archangel in English, Ängelholm in turn means Angel Islet.

So, how awesome wouldn’t it be that three different coastal cities named after angels would all be on a mathematically straight line?

Damn awesome, that’s what.
