Welcome to the Embassy of Finland in Prague and to the Embassy’s web page. Our web page is an important communication channel which provides information about the Embassy and its services as well as general information about Finland and the Czech Republic.
The Finnish Embassy represents Finland in the Czech Republic. It is a part of the network of Finnish diplomatic missions abroad and one of hundred offices around the world. Embassies and consulates operate as representations of the Finnish government and serve worldwide Finnish citizens and the Finnish society.
Our main aim is to be an active, approachable and open Embassy. We provide services to both private persons and companies.
The relations between Finland and the Czech Republic are excellent in all levels. Cultural exchange and travel business are growing. When talking about technology, innovations or education, Finland is often mentioned as a model in the Czech Republic.
One of the Embassy’s most essential objectives is to sustain and develop the good relations between our two countries and to contribute to Finland’s success and renown in the Czech Republic. The Embassy follows the Czech Republic’s political and economical development and its EU policy.
The Embassy monitors Finland’s and its citizens’ rights in the Czech Republic and supports its export promotion and the activities of Finnish companies located in the Czech Republic. A vital part of the Embassy’s work consists in enhancing cultural exchange. The consular services also help the Finnish citizens in trouble and provide passport and notarial services.
Located in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic offers good possibilities for expanding cooperation. I believe that the Czech Republic’s significance for the Finns and Finnish companies will be important also in the future. Hopefully Czech travellers and investors will choose more often Finland as their destination.
I hope that our web page is useful for Finnish tourists and also for Finns and foreigners living in the Czech Republic.
Welcome to the Embassy!
Ambassador Päivi Hiltunen -Toivio
