"In Finland one speaks Finnish and Swedish."

Translation:I Finland snakker man finsk og svensk.

Can you say, "I Finland, man snakker..."


No, the verb needs to be the second element in the sentence.

You may see sentence structures like the one you're proposing in poetry or song lyrics, but that's a case of poetic license and does not sound natural in regular speech.


Additionally, the comma after Finland would be considered a grammatical mistake.
