Aland Islands

The Åland Islands, or Åland, is a self-governing area of Finland. Involving around 6,700 islands, this Swedish-talking archipelago is in the Baltic Sea. The capital, Mariehamn, on the fundamental island of Fasta Åland, is known for its shorelines and boulevards fixed with nineteenth-century wooden townhouses, handiwork shops, and bistros. Västerhamn, the town's western port, joins Åland with Estonia, Sweden, and Finland.
