Welcome to Vaasa – Finland’s sunniest city!

Vaasa is located on the western coast, 420 km from the capital Helsinki. With 65.000 inhabitants and of those 12.000 students, makes Vaasa the one of the best study cities in the country. Of the inhabitants there is 71 % Finnish speaking and 23 % Swedish speaking people. For you guys who have never heard that Finland has two main languages (Finnish 90% and 5.4% Swedish), I will now inform you, we who speak Swedish we are not from Sweden; we are just as much Finnish as the people who speak Finnish! And just to base this fact on something real, there is a city not far from Vaasa named Korsnäs, which is the most Swedish speaking region in the whole world! (Yes! more Swedish than any place in Sweden, I find that quite cool! :))
