Finland Borders

What, no travel to Scandinavia?

Finland Borders thanks to Dave Loewen

The Difference Between Scandinavia and Nordic Countries
Scandinavia historically encompassed the kingdoms of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. Formerly, Finland was part of Sweden for approximately 700 years, and Iceland belonged to Norway and Denmark. Geographically, Finland and Iceland are not a part of the Scandinavian peninsula, and therefore not truly Scandinavian countries. To fix the dilemma, the French dubbed Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, and Denmark as 'Nordic' countries.
Finland has one of the lowest immigration rates in the world, and has the highest per capita consumption of coffee in the world (consuming an average of 26 pounds of coffee each year). The official language is Finnish (aka Suomi), and the capital city of Finland is Helsinki.
