Safety and Security

Finland is known to be a very safe country. With a low crime rate and a high sense of civic responsibility, it is easy to feel comfortable living and visiting in Finnish cities.

With its small population and sparsely inhabited cities, Finland can be seen as a safe and secure country where people trust and help one another. The police are friendly and easy to approach.
