The archipelago of Scandinavia is unique. It includes 90.000 islands, islets and skerries. It is located in eastern Sweden and western Finland with Åland right in the middle of it.
The word Archipelago has greek origin (from medieval Greek ἀρχιπέλαγος). Of course, the Greek archipelago is famous, but actually you will only find about 2000 islands and islets there, whereof 227 inhabited. Even the greek archipelago combined with the turkish archipelago, the scandinavian is larger.
The archipelago streches through Sweden, Aland and Finland
This unique region is easy to access from Stockholm and Turku, from
where cruise ships and ferries pass through the area and all the way
out to the smallest, inhabited islands. Mariehamn, the capital of the
autonomous region Åland, is well connected from Stockholm, Turku and Helsinki. Åland is a part of the project Scandinavian Islands, read more here.
