Eastern Uusimaa or, officially, Itä-Uusimaa[1] (Finnish: Itä-Uusimaa; Swedish: Östra Nyland) was a region in Finland, until it was consolidated with the region of Uusimaa on January 1, 2011.[2] It bordered the regions of Uusimaa, Päijänne Tavastia (Päijät-Häme) and Kymenlaakso.

Historical provinces[edit]


The region of Eastern Uusimaa was made up of seven municipalities, of which two had city status (marked in bold). The first name is the name of the municipality in the majority (or sole) language of the municipality. The official name (where there is one) in the other national language is given in brackets.
