Walk the Streets of Medieval Old Porvoo
Old Porvoo – that is, Vanha Porvoo – is the name for the historic, medieval part of Porvoo. Here, narrow and winding cobblestone streets are lined with colourful wooden houses. Some of the houses are hotels or shops, some restaurants, cafés or people’s private homes. On a little hilltop, there’s also a Gothic cathedral to visit. With its wooden cottages and cosy and cute atmosphere, Porvoo Old Town is very different from other more imposing European Old Towns.
