Porvoo is most known for it´s pittoresque

Fish Cottages

Actually they used to be stores for salt and other merchandise.

Hey, some people are actually living also here!

Just think, how romantic it could be during wintertime?!







In Loviisa you will find

beautiful wooden Old Houses!



Those houses survived the 1855 fire. Not maybe so many shops nor narrow street views, but walking from the market place to the harbour through this area is nice.

The Jewel of Porvoo is the Old Town

dating from the medieval time. Walking here during the summertime or even winter is always fascinating.

Beside these small wooden houses where people are actually living, there are many small shops and boutiques.

The houses are not cheap to buy, if there´s even one on sale from time to time!

Porvoo was born to be a trade center beside

the River Porvoo


before Helsinki was founded. The King of Sweden, Magnus Eriksson, granted the town rights in 1346.

The greatest man was however the Russian Czar, Alexander I, who granted Finland the autonoumus rights here at Porvoo in 1809.

Let´s forget the grumpy old swedes and russians, and go for an icecream to the riverside outdoor cafés!

Recipe for the famous

Runeberg´s cakes (Runebergin tortut)

created by his wife Ulrika:



1 egg

1,5 dl sugar

1 dl coffee cream

1 dl ground almond

2 dl bread or cake crumbs/ rusk flour (Runeberg´s wife was so economical...)

1,5 dl melted butter (~150 gr)

1,5 dl wheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

For decoration strawberry or rasberry jam, icing

Whisk the egg and the sugar until they become a white foam. Add the cream, almonds, bread crumbs and the melted butter, mixing well. Add in the end the wheat flour and the baking powder (already mixed together earlier). Put the batter to 12-16 muffin moulds and bake in a 225 C degree preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Decorate first with a dollop of jam in the middle of the cake, then with the icing, making a circle aroud the jam. You can also moisten the cakes with some rum, punch or liqueur.

To be eaten at Runeberg´s Day 5th of February with schnaps.
