Aurinkolahti
AURINKOLAHTI (meaning "Sunny Bay"; Swedish : _Solvik_) is a young and fast-growing sub-neighbourhood of the East Helsinki neighbourhood of Vuosaari , in Helsinki , Finland . Aurinkolahti's original name was Mustalahti ("Black Bay"), but for marketing reasons the decision was made to update it. HISTORYConstruction of residential buildings in Aurinkolahti began in 2000 and is still continuing. The completed neighbourhood will have about 7,000 residents. The neighbourhood was planned by the city of Helsinki as a residential area for high-income people, in order to balance the low-income housing in much of East Helsinki and boost the image of Vuosaari. Much of the housing which has been built there to date is upscale condominiums; the housing development includes a regional fiber-optic network, 700m of swimming beach and a 200-place small-craft harbour, among other amenities

Originally named _Sveaborg_ (Fortress of Svea ), or _Viapori_ as called by Finnish-speaking Finns, it was renamed in Finnish to _Suomenlinna_ (Castle of Finland) in 1918 for patriotic and nationalistic reasons, though it is still known by its original name in Sweden and by Swedish-speaking Finns. The Swedish crown commenced the construction of the fortress in 1748 as protection against Russian expansionism

Regions Of Finland
Finland comprises 19 regions called MAAKUNTA in Finnish and LANDSKAP in Swedish. The regions are governed by regional councils, which serve as forums of cooperation for the municipalities of a region. The main tasks of the regions are regional planning and development of enterprise and education. In addition, the public health services are usually organized on the basis of regions. Currently, the only region where a popular election is held for the council is Kainuu. Other regional councils are elected by municipal councils , each municipality sending representatives in proportion to its population. In addition to inter-municipal cooperation, which is the responsibility of regional councils, there are 15 Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (Finnish: _elinkeino-, liikenne- ja ympäristökeskus_, abbreviated _ely-keskus_), which is responsible for the local administration of labour, agriculture, fisheries, forestry and entrepreneurial affairs

Europe
EUROPE —a concept dating back to classical antiquity — is a continent that comprises the westernmost part of Eurasia . Europe is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. The eastern boundary with Asia is an arbitrary historical and social construct , as there is no clear physical and geographical separation between them. The primarily physiographic term "continent" as applied to Europe also incorporates cultural and political elements whose discontinuities and lines of demarcation are not reflected by the continent's current overland boundaries with Asia
