Cosy Porvoo is also known for the one and only real Christmas town


The old town of the Medieval City of Porvoo is the right place to visit all around the year. Take a look at my pictures and add a bit of snow and ice in the landscape, Porvoo is absolutely beautiful in winter time as well!

Porvoo locates at the beautiful Porvoo river, a 45 minute drive from Helsinki and our tour back to Helsinki will be done through the countryside. Porvoo is the second oldest medieval town in Finland and it offers cousy old streets, terraces, small cosy shops, cafeterias and you get the feeling that the old wooden houses have been thrown from sky to one area!

One of the narrow streets has been elected to be one of the most beautiful streets in Finland!
