Sipoo in finnish or Sibbo in swedish is a municipality of Finland. It is the eastern neighbour of Helsinki and is located in the province of Southern Finland.
The once almost completely Swedish speaking municipality is since 1953 bilingual, a majority being Finnish speakers since 2003, due to migration from other parts of Finland. Today the Finnish speaking majority stands for ca 60% and the Swedish speaking minority for about 39% of the population.
