Postal Codes in Finland

Postal Codes In Finland

Finland has used five-digit numeric postal codes since 1971. The first two digits designate the municipality or group of municipal small communities where it may be 5; codes ending in 1 are for post office boxes. A corporation receiving large amounts of mail may have its own postal code. The special postal code 99999 is for Korvatunturi, the place where Santa Claus (or Joulupukki in Finnish) is said to live.

Famous quotes containing the words postal and/or codes:

    Thought of the others they would never meet
    Or how their lives would all contain this hour.
    I thought of London spread out in the sun,
    Its postal districts packed like squares of wheat:
    Philip Larkin (1922–1985)

    ... until both employers’ and workers’ groups assume responsibility for chastising their own recalcitrant children, they can vainly bay the moon about “ignorant” and “unfair” public criticism. Moreover, their failure to impose voluntarily upon their own groups codes of decency and honor will result in more and more necessity for government control.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
