Finland Postal Code



Finland Postal Codes

In 1638, the first postal contacts were established between Stockholm and Turku. Initially, postal sailboat racers delivered mail and parcels. When Finland was a part of the Russian Empire, Russian stamps were introduced in the country in May 1981. Finland's stamps remained valid for a year.


With the introduction of the euro in 2002, all previous stamps were invalid. The value in euros is not printed on Finnish stamps, only in the transit category.
