Porvoo is a perfect example of how gracefully the old can blend with the new, while still retaining its own unique atmosphere. Built in the 18th century, the residential area of Old Porvoo is an idyllic and picturesque district perched on a hill by Porvoonjoki. Porvoo Cathedral, located at the heart of Old Porvoo, is one of the city’s most well-known buildings. Built at the turn of the 14th century, the cathedral’s remarkable history has seen it burn down five times, most recently in an arson attack in 2006. Following the devastation, the cathedral was renovated for two years, finally reopening to the public in 2008. Chosen excursion available subject to minimal number of participants.
