  Article Content


Espoo is a city on the Southern coast of Finland sharing a boundary with Helsinki to its east and Vantaa to its north. Together with Kauniainen (which is very small, and entirely enclosed by Espoo) these form Helsinki Metropolitan Area. Espoo with its population of about 220,000 is the second biggest city of the metropolitan area (and indeed of Finland).

Espoo is divided to the following areas: Espoon keskus[?], Espoonlahti[?], Kalajärvi[?], Kauklahti[?], Leppävaara[?], Matinkylä-Olari[?], and Tapiola.

The telecommunications firm Nokia has its headquarters in Espoo, as do many other international firms.
