Kirkkonummi, or Kyrkslätt in Swedish, is a municipality of 30,000 inhabitants in Southern Finland. In the west it borders to Espoo and the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. Other neighbouring municipalities are Inkoo and Siuntio.

Geographically, Kirkkonummi is practically equivalent to the Porkkala peninsula, which houses a major Finnish naval base. Porkkala is also on one of the main bird migration routes in the Baltic Sea region.
