Old Porvoo, with its red-ochre painted riverside warehouses, is one of the most photographed national landscapes in Finland and a steady favourite among tourists. Over 1,6 million travellers come every year to admire the colourful wooden houses and stroll on the winding cobbled streets, to enjoy what the restaurants and cafes have to offer, and to shop in the chocolateshops and small boutiques. Others like to relax in the National Urban Park that stretches over the whole river valley.
Old Porvoo is an easy and popular day trip from Helsinki. Special moments are captured in Porvoo and they are looked back on for a long time. It's hard to find the same kind of atmosphere and idyll anywhere esle in Finland.
Old Porvoo is very dear to us and one of our most important goals is to promote sustainable tourism. Please enjoy and respect Old Porvoo!
