Geography of Sweden:
Sweden is divided into counties as well as into provinces. The provinces are very old, from early medieval times. There are 25 provinces and the borders have been stable since the year 1634, with one major exception.
1809 Sweden lost the war with Russia so Finland came under Russian rule. Until then the two northernmost provinces was called "Västerbotten" and "Österbotten" (West of Bothnia and East of Bothnia, Bothnia being the northern part of the Baltic sea). In 1810 "Västerbotten" was split in two - a new "Västerbotten" and "Norrbotten".

In Mindat the provinces are used.
