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.
Pellinge is glistening bays, lush islands, austere cliffs and on top of it all, an active archipelago and village community with many different services and events. Pellinge archipelago is truly inviting during the beautiful summer months, but there is much to offer all year round.
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 contemporary artists.
Wake up to a slow morning in a beautiful room, admiring the beauty opening up from the window and with the breakfast of your dreams awaiting downstairs. Staying the night in Porvoo often means a manor, a wooden house, an idyll, nature, encounters – something special. It can be a historic manor turned into a hotel; or a romantic B&B. Just as well the luxury of a boutique hotel, a hostel in a wooden villa or a cottage in the archipelago. Stay longer and Porvoo will award you with more of its beauty.
