Finland (pronounced /ˈfɪnlənd/  ( listen)), officially the Republic of Finland[5]About this sound Finnish: Suomi; Swedish: Finland , is a Nordic country situated in the Fennoscandian region of Northern Europe. It is bordered by Sweden on the west, Norway on the north and Russia on the east, while Estonia lies to its south across the Gulf of Finland.
