Espoo

Espoo is Finlands second largest city and quite original in urban structure. The city consists of five district centres, all of them as large as a normal Finnish town, connected perfectly by public transport to one another and to Nuuksio National Park and the green countryside. One of the best known districts is probably Tapiola, the carefully designed garden city, in which inhabitants, nature and architecture are in harmony with each other. The high-tech city, which is only a quarter of an hour from Helsinki, boasts several interesting museums and festivals, such as the April Jazz festival and the Espoo Cin International Film Festival.
