Porvoo, Finland (Helsinki)


Next on our Baltic tour was Finland.  Our port was Helsinki, a rapidly growing city of some 800,000 people. We had a bus tour of the city and then of to the town of Porvoo.

Porvoo is one of six medieval cities in Finland.  It was first mentioned n writings dating back to the 14th century.  It has retained much of its original cobbled streets, narrow walkways, smal shops and a historic church.

    Gorgeous photos. I am very glad that You visited to Porvoo. I noticed among Your photos a photo presenting Votive ship. Maybe You do not know about what they are:

    Ships inside churches.

    They are gorgeous. This is good example of unknown Finland and You noticed it. Congratulations.

    Have a good day!
