istor
The name "Vantaa" was taken into use in 1972 when the municipality gained market town rights. The first record of the area is as "Helsinge" in 1351 when king Magnus II of Sweden granted salmon fishing rights on the river Vantaa to the Estonian Padise monastery. The municipality was formerly known as "Helsingin maalaiskunta" "Rural municipality of Helsinki". The rapids of river Vantaa were known as "Helsingfors", from which the current Swedish name of Helsinki derives. In 1972, the municipality was renamed "Vantaa/Vanda" and promoted to a market town (i.e. "Vantaan kauppala/Vanda köping"), and in 1974, finally renamed "Vantaan kaupunki/Vanda stad" "City of Vantaa".

On October 11, 2002, the city was shocked by the explosion of a bomb in the local Myyrmanni shopping centre, killing 7, including the bomber, a 19-year-old chemistry student from the Espoo-Vantaa Institute of Technology (see Myyrmanni bombing).
