Our beautiful city turns 675 years! We celebrate together and at the same time we celebrate the versatile know-how in Porvoo - we are many!
Porvoo is one of the six medieval cities in Finland. It is usually counted from the year 1346. Large celebrations have been celebrated since the 19th century every 25 years.
In 2021, we celebrate Porvoo's 675th anniversary, or are we?
The actual age of the city raises questions, and there are several different interpretations. The practice of calculating age from which event or document is calculated is open to interpretation.
