Bahá’í communities

Bahá’í landed in Finland in the 1930s. Around 900 Bahá’ís live in over 60 cities and there is already the 4th generation of Bahá’ís living in Finland. The first Bahá’í visiting Finland was an American journalist, Martha Root, who in 1927 told about Bahá’í belief in a public event and in meetings with officials and journalists. In 1950 the first local councils and the Finnish Bahá’í Centre were established. The centre is still located at the same place in Helsinki.
