Beautiful scenery especially in the summer or in the winter when it has snowed. Nice for a stroll on the tiny alleys with boutiques and cafes. Absolutely beautiful!

Beautiful town, not just the old part of it, but the whole town is magic, coloured and quiet. And very close to Helsinki, you can just take a regular bus from Helsinki centre and you will be there in a little more than an hour....More

You can travel by car or by bus to Porvoo easily. At summer I recommend to take J.L.Runeberg, an old steam ship sailing from Helsinki market square. Sometimes there are even museum trains running, but that is a rare treat. City was founded 1380, so...More

Lovely town full of old wooden houses and a lake. 1hr bus ride from Helsinki departing from Pasila / Böle station, 9 euro each way. Was very atmospheric as la dscspe covered with snow. Many coffees available. Best sight around Helsinki, perfect for a daytrip.

What a cute place to visit. Loved the cobblestone roads. The shops are very charming and have lots of nice things to buy.

It takes for an hour from Helsinki by bus at every hour. Town is small, so just need for a couple of hours for sightseeing. I think it is good for excursion.

For the very low price of 4 euros you can take a 45 minute Omni Bus from Kamppi bus station right to the core of Porvoo. We reached here by noon & head straight to have lunch at Hanna-Maria (cheap & good) before exploring the...More

Xmast markets and shops. Unique oldtown and historical site to visit also in Wintertime. Great athmosphere and relaxing feeling to walk and look around places like an old Church and old houses.

The show has fallen, quieting sounds, even your own steps to enjoy the old pastel coloured houses from various eras gently covered with snow. The Winter lights decorate door ways, windows and occational ice lanterns shed their flickering lights over small, intimate courtyards created by...More
