Finland is generally considered a safe country with a low crime rate. However, there are still some areas that may have higher crime rates than others. It’s important to note that “dangerous” can mean different things to different people, and crime statistics can vary depending on the source and the specific definition of “dangerous.”
According to the 2021 crime statistics from the Finnish Police, the city with the highest crime rate per capita was Helsinki, which is also the largest city in Finland. However, this does not necessarily mean that Helsinki is the most dangerous city in Finland.
It’s important to keep in mind that Finland is a relatively safe country overall, and any potential danger can be minimized by taking common sense precautions such as staying aware of your surroundings, avoiding dangerous areas, and being cautious with valuables.
According to the Finnish Police’s 2021 crime statistics, the total number of reported crimes in Finland decreased slightly compared to the previous year, but the number of violent crimes increased by 7.5%.
Out of all the cities in Finland, Helsinki had the highest number of reported crimes, with a total of 59,149 crimes in 2021. However, when looking at crime rates per capita, Helsinki’s crime rate was actually lower than some other cities.
For example, the city of Kajaani, located in eastern Finland, had the highest crime rate per capita in 2021. However, it’s important to note that Kajaani is a much smaller city than Helsinki and has a relatively small population, which can make crime rates appear higher.
Other cities with relatively high crime rates per capita in 2021 include Oulu, Vaasa, and Turku. However, all of these cities still have relatively low crime rates compared to many other countries around the world.
Overall, Finland is considered a safe country with low crime rates. However, it’s always important to exercise caution and common sense when traveling or living in any city or country.
