How to say where you are in Finnish
Now, something as simple as that can be made surprisingly difficult. Since Finland has no prepositions, we use case suffixes. It’s pretty confusing to learn, and this is one of the reasons why.
"I’m in Helsinki" would translate to "(Minä) olen Helsingissä.” Nothing too…
Well, as far as I understood it, some kind of a rule is that you use the ssa/ssä if you are talking about something not flat, like a box or a house or a city with tall buildings, and the lla/llä if it’s some surface, like a table or a field, or a town built on top of the sea. Sometimes this logic works.
