Where is Espoo, Finland?

Espoo is in Southern Finland just outside of Helsinki – kind of like Alpharetta to Atlanta or Hockessin to Wilmington or Steiner Ranch to Austin.  Those of you needing a brush up on your World Geography, Finland borders Sweden, Norway and Russia.The population of Finland is 5.2 million mostly concentrated in the South. Nearly a million live in metro-Helsinki area which includes the cities of Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa.  Some of the other big towns you might have heard of are Tampere, Turku, Oulu, Lahti, Kuopio, Jyväskylä, Pori, Lapeenranta, Vaasa, Kotka and Joensuu.  43% of households live in apartments and 40% in detached housing.  There are 1 million residential buildings and an estimated 2 million saunas.  Finnish is the language spoken here, but also Swedish and most speak beautiful English.

I guess we are still considered Southerners! 🙂
