Czechs in Finland

The Czech community in Finland is organized in several compatriot organizations. The Finnish-Czech society and the Bohemia society gather friends of the Czech Republic, while the unorganized group of Czechs studying and living around Finland meets and shares information on the website Finčech.

The significant part of the compatriots work lies on the promotion of Czech language. They are participating on providing courses of Czech language for interested public or for school children of Czech citizens. The total number of Czech citizens living and working in Finland is about 500. The Finnish well evaluated education system also interest students from Czech Republic and the number of exchanges is higher every year.
