Finland’s big year 2017

After being a part of the Swedish Kingdom and the Russian Empire, Finland finally became an independent state on 6 December 1917. In spite of hard times, the Finnish people have for almost a hundred years engaged in the building of their country and making decisions together. Now the Finns are leading their country into a new century with courage and determination.
