FINNISH REGIONS AND PROVINCES

Finland has a very complicated history of administrative divisions.

The first provinces were formed in 1634 and until 2009 there have been 11 administrative reforms. Currently there are 19 regions, which were created in 2009. Previous reforms were in 1996 and 1960. The 1634 provinces are still known as the 'historical province'.
