Example text... Swedish colonisation of coastal Uusimaa started after the second crusade to Finland in the 13th century.
The names Uusimaa and Nyland meaning “new land”. Nyland appears in the documents from the 14th century and Uusimaa appears for the first time in 1548 as Wsimaa in the first translation of the New Testament to Finnish by Mikael Agricola.
The Finnish provinces were ceded to Imperial Russia in the War of Finland in 1809. After this, Uusimaa became the Province of Uusimaa of the old lääni system. From 1997 to 2010, Uusimaa was a part of the Province of Southern Finland. It has been divided in the regions of Uusimaa and Eastern Uusimaa. In 2011, the two regions were merged.
