Mariehamn (Maarianhamina in Finnish) is the capital of Aland, autonomous territory under sovereignty of Finland. It has a total area of 20.75 km2 (8.01 ml2). Mariehamn is the seat of Aland's Government and Parliament, and 40% of the population of Aland live in it (11,520 according to 2016 census). Like all of Aland, Mariehamn is Swedish-speaking and around 90% of the inhabitants speak it as native language.
- The town was named after Maria Alexandrovna (1824-1880, Russian empress). Mariehamn was established in 1861, around Overnas village, in what was at the time part of Jomala municipality. The city has since expanded and currently incorporates more of the territory of Jomala.
- Mariehamn city was built according to a regular scheme that is well-preserved. Södragatan is one of the oldest streets, with many wooden houses which date from the 19th century.
- Mariehamn is located on a peninsula. It features two important harbours, one on the eastern shore and one on the western, which are ice-free for about the whole year round, and have no tides. Western Harbour is a major international harbour featuring daily traffic to mainland Finland, Sweden and Estonia. A powerful reason for Baltic ferries to stop at port Mariehamn is that Aland is not part of EU customs zone and duty-free goods can be sold aboard.
- Mariehamn Airport is situated in the neighbouring Jomala municipality, some 3 km (2 ml) north-west of the city centre of Mariehamn. Aland and Mariehamn boast reputable heritage in shipping. Anchored in Western Harbour is the Flying P-Liner Pommern museum ship. The Eastern Harbour has one of the largest Scandinavian marinas. The Dutch steamer Jan Nieveen (today called F.P.von Knorring, after Aland vicar and teacher Frans Peter von Knorring, 1792-1875) can also be found here.
