Okay, first a little let down. Although there are places in Finland which call themselves the sunniest, we don’t really know which actually is the sunniest city in Finland. But thanks to the data provided by the Finnish Meteorological Institute, we can make a pretty good guess.
Finnish Meteorological Institute have been gathering data on how many hours sun shines in certain places in Finland. Based on this data, cities like Helsinki, Kotka and Parainen have quite good rankings on “sunny hours”. Unfortunately data isn’t gathered in every city, so making an accurate list is not possible. However, it is known, and what the data also suggests, there is usually there a better chance to get to enjoy sunshine in coastal cities compared to the inland cities.
So if we are going to make a list of the sunniest cities in Finland, we should pick up some coastal towns. So here you go. The (unoffical) list of the sunniest cities in Filand.
