Western Finland (Länsi-Suomi) is a region of Finland. In 2010, it was administratively split into Western and Inner Finland (Länsi- ja Sisä-Suomi), for Tampere, Jyväskylä, Central Finland, and the coast near Vaasa, and Southwestern Finland (Lounais-Suomi), for the area near Turku.


Western Finland is divided into seven regions.
