About Finland

Finland is located in Northern Europe, along the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Bothnia. It’s a part of Scandinavia, bordering just two other countries including Sweden to the west and Russia in the east.

The capital of Finland is Helsinki and is the northernmost national capital of any European nation. The country of Finland shares a long boundary with Russia in the east, over 1300 kilometers long.

The terrain of Finland is mostly flat and rolling plains. Finland refers itself as “the land of thousands of lakes” with over 188,000 lakes scattered across the country. Halti or “Haltiatunturi” is Finland’s highest mountain peak at 1,328 meters high, along its border with Norway.
