Provinces of Finland

Finland consists of 6 provinces (läänit/län), following a 1997 redesign that reduced their number from 12.


The province of Åland enjoys a high degree of autonomy.

Each province has a State Provincial Office[?] (Lääninhallitus/Länsstyrelse) which is lead by a Governor (Maaherra/Landshövding).
