Espoo is beautiful and full of history, a great place to live
Espoo has more than 260,000 residents and is Finland’s second largest city. Espoo is constantly developing and growing at a tremendous speed. According to a recent international comparative study, Espoo is the most sustainable city in Europe when measured using economic, sociocultural and ecological indicators.
One significant development was the completion of the West Metro in 2017. It makes commuting between Helsinki and Espoo easier and forms an even more effective transport connection for residents in both Espoo and Helsinki. The extension from Matinkylä to Kivenlahti is estimated to be completed in 2022.
In addition to development, Espoo is a central player in the sciences and international business, all the while offering a broad array of cultural activities as well. For example, the Espoo Cultural Center is one of the most important art platforms. The International Theatre of Finland puts on both international and Finnish theatre pieces.
