Join me on a guided walk exploring the Old Town of Porvoo.
The old town of Porvoo is the second oldest town in Finland and it is a gem with its cobbled stone narrow streets and small wooden houses. Walking through the town on foot is by far the best way to explore Porvoo, or Borgå as it is called in Swedish. The history and location of Porvoo dates back to the 12th century when it became a town. The Porvoo river has had and still has an important role in the lives of the locals. The protected wooden old town is unique in Finland, and is well preserved but also serves as the residential place for up to 3000 inhabitants today.
We will explore the Old Town by visiting Porvoo Cathedral dating back to 1480. We will walk by Porvoo River admiring the red river warehouses and walk into the traditional Old Town Square.
Note: This tour is only available after May 1st 2023
