    Favorite thing:

    In Loviisa old town center you will find

    an active market place the Town Hall and the Loviisa Church.




    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.

    Favorite thing:

    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!

    Favorite thing:

    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!

    Favorite thing: Everything in Loviisa is in a distance walking, so just rake it easy and stroll around the city. There is also the older part of the city with some very nice old building.
