Espoo is situated in the Helsinki region in southern Finland. It has come a long way from a miniscule rural town in the early twentieth century to a bustling city of approximately 230,000 inhabitants.
Summer is the best time to visit. July is the warmest month with the average temperature being 19°C. Winter is severe and long. The coldest month is March when temperatures drop five degrees below freezing point.
Agriculture formed the backbone of the city’s economy. But, in the last 50 years, rapid development has seen Espoo transform into one of Finland’s primary industrial centres.
Espoo lies on the route of the King’s Road, which was built in the fourteenth century. This connected it to some of the biggest cities in northern Europe and played a major role in the development of the city.
