Welcome to where?


Explanation:
Hello!

In Finnish you need to know the entire sentence since the word "to" is actually a postposition that gets attached to the end of the next word.

Hyvää päivää, Tervetuloa


Explanation:
Hyvää päivää is one of the Finnish ways to say "Hello". It is a formal greeting. See the first website listed below for other Finnish greetings.
Tervetuloa is the Finnish word for "Welcome" (but not welcome TO).
Good luck!
