List Of Cities And Towns In Finland
The following is a list of cities in Finland. In the year 1977, the legal difference between towns and municipalities was removed. Today they are all classified as municipalities, some of which are commonly referred to as towns (kaupunki in Finnish, 'stad' in Swedish). A municipality can itself decide whether it calls itself a municipality or a town. To date, many decide to use the latter. There is no direct Finnish equivalent to "city", but "suurkaupunki", which literally means "large town", is used for only a few cities in Finland. This nicely fits the EU's definition of a city, which has the criteria of a minimum population of 50 000 and a minimum population density of 500 inhabitants per square kilometer. A simple, independent decision in the municipal council is sufficient to call a rural "municipality" (kunta) a "town" (kaupunki)
