General Information About Finland
Finland is a highly developed country located in northern Europe. It has common borders with Sweden from the West, Norway from the North and Russia from the East. Finland is the eighth largest country in Europe with about 5.4 million inhabitants, so the density of population is relatively low. Most of the people live in the southern parts of the country. There are two official languages in Finland: Finnish (widely spoken) and Swedish (spoken in some particular areas).
Helsinki is the capital city and the most populated city in the country, with approximately 600 000 people living in the city area. There is also, the greater Helsinki region, which includes Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa, with a population 1.2 million. Helsinki is located in the southern part of the country by the Baltic Sea. The city has a rich history and culture; the downtown area is definitely worth a visit with its beautiful seaside view. Other cities are easily accessible from Helsinki as well; these include Tallinn, Stockholm or St. Petersburg. One can visit these cities mainly by ship connections. The majority of the capital’s populace speaks English, so it is not necessary to have knowledge of the Finnish language before one can communicate with others.
