Which European language is Finnish most closely related to?

Swedish
Estonian
Hungarian
None
Finnish is not an In­do-Eu­ro­pean lan­guage. It is (to­geth­er with Es­to­ni­an) a member of Finnic group, which itself belong to Uralic family. Estonian and Finnish are not mutually in­tel­li­gi­ble, although many words and the grammar are similar, so people can typ­i­cal­ly un­der­stand written texts in the other language to some extent (sim­i­lar­i­ly to Por­tuguese and Span­ish).
