Esbo : Michelin's recommendations
Lying a little to the west of Helsinki, Espoo has since 1972 been Finland’s second city. It is an agglomeration of several previously separate settlements, each with their own essential services (retail, banking, schooling, medical); 86% of its buildings have gone up since the 1960s. Visitors should not miss the attractive wall paintings in the Espon Keskus church.
