The Embassy of Finland in Stockholm is Finland's diplomatic mission in Sweden.

History

In 1917, Finland, which recently had declared independence, appointed a trade representative to Stockholm, representing all the Scandinavian countries. On December 12, 1917, an unofficial "Finnish Advisory Board in Stockholm" was opened. Alexis Gripenberg was the case manager at the time. In January 1918 he officially became chargé d'affaires.

In terms of postal, courier and passport traffic, the Stockholm embassy was the Finland's busiest.

During World War II, the Stockholm delegation played a key role. It had numerous economic, social and political responsibilities. Most emphasis was placed on information activities and payment and trade issues that were important for the supply situation.
