Description

Half Day in PorvooDiscover the small, quaint town of Porvoo when you make a stop in Helsinki, this is an opportunity you should not pass up as Porvoo is on many people's bucket list.Porvoo is located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, approximately 50km away from the Finnish capital. This old town is full of history, architectural beauty, and galleries.Begin your day as your local, knowledgeable guide greets you at the pier. Upon arrival into Porvoo, your guide will take you to your first stop, the 15th-century Cathedral. This Evangelical Lutheran Church was built with some parts dating back to the 13th-century, making it one of the oldest churches in Finland.As your tour guide takes you through old narrow streets, make sure you have your camera at the ready, so you can document the architectural beauty. This city witnessed some of the greatest historical changes in Finland, such as the Diet of Porvoo. This Diet was signed in 1809 and was the time when Finland became a Grand Principality of Russia, rather than being ruled by Sweden.As you continue walking, pay close attention to the small boutiques, antique stores, craft stores, and souvenir shops, which offer everything from postcards to Christmas decorations to antiques. After your guide has given you a personal tour of the local landmarks you can enjoy some free time to discover more of the narrow streets, shop, or enjoy a nice meal in one of the many restaurants available or a local cafe.At the designated time you will meet once again and return to Helsinki after an unforgettable walk through history in Porvoo.
