A relativistic Thomas-Fermi model of finite nuclei is considered. The effective nuclear interaction is mediated by exchanges of isoscalar scalar and vector mesons. We include also a self-interaction of the scalar meson field and the Coulomb repulsion of the protons. The parameters of the model are constrained by the average nuclear properties. The Thomas-fermi equations are solved numerically for finite, stable nuclei. The particular case of 20882Pb is considered in more detail.
