The summer of your dreams!
The old town of Porvoo is particularly charming and you might easily feel as if you are stepping back in time. Distinctive restaurants and cafés as well as events full of feeling invites you to enjoy the city of charming moments.
Enjoy Porvoo for a couple of days and stay overnight in a unique manor, boutique hotel, bed & breakfast or in a hotel in the middle of the city.
Participate in events, enjoy art exhibitions or head out to our National Urban Park.
Finland's national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg and Fredrika Runeberg lived with their sons in Porvoo. In their house museum the works of art, Runeberg's hunting weapons in the 'fox skin room', and the porcelain in the cupboards all serve as reminders of both everyday and social life of the family. In Fredrika's garden the scent of roses, mock-orange and fruit trees fill the air in summer.
In 1882, Albert Edelfelt (1854-1905) built a small studio in Haikko. It was here that he painted many of his most important works. Exhibited in the studio are drawings, paintings and photographs as well as artefacts belonging to the artist.
This summer Villa Albert opens where you can find a contemporary art exhibition with works from finnish artists Tero Annanolli, Johanna Lumme and Hannu Palosuo.
