Environmental zone Helsinki - Finland

The environmental zone of Helsinki

Helsinki has been the capital of Finland since 1917. It is situated in the Uusimaa region in the south of the country on the coast of a peninsula on the Gulf of Finland. With a population of around 635,000, Helsinki is Finland’s largest city and the third largest city in the Nordic countries after Stockholm and Oslo.

It covers an area of 715 km². The city is the political, economic, intellectual, scientific and cultural centre of Finland.
The city was founded in 1550 when Finland belonged to Sweden, but at that time it never achieved a significant importance.

The environmental zone entered into force on 01.05.2010. It covers the city centre from Helsinki to the south of Hakamäentie.
