Weekend trip to Porvoo

This past weekend we all packed into our car and headed off to Porvoo, Finland’s second oldest town. Established in 1346 Porvoo was an important trading town that was repeatedly ransacked by the all sorts of people throughout history but fortunately survived to become the beautiful town it is today. Porvoo is full of wooden houses and cobble stone streets and with it’s riverside settling sort of reminded me of Nantucket town..

We were able to get in and out between rain showers (this is after all November in Finland). Porvoo is defiantly a place we’ll go back to during the summer, and if any of you come visit.. this will be one of our tourist stops.
