Municipality and administration
Eura is a municipality with a population of 11,600, located in the southern part of the Satakunta region.

In terms of area, the municipality of Eura is large: about 630 square kilometres. In 1970, the municipalities of Hinnerjoki and Honkilahti were merged with Eura, and the municipality of Kiukainen followed in 2009. The Eura church village and Kauttua form the centre of the municipality.
