What are we going to do

I invite you to Old Porvoo to hear stories about our history but also about the way of living nowadays in Porvoo. In my town artist have lived and still live and we visit the 18th century old town hall where we can see paintings made by Albert Edelfelt, sculptures by Ville Vallgren, as well as 20th century design. You`ll also get the answer to the question: "How are the Moomins connected to Porvoo?"
Next stop will be the art exhibition of Näsi Art Manor. I choose scenic walking routes for beautiful photos.
We also stop for a refreshment break during our walk.

Additional cost: admission fees in the Town Hall (8€), Näsi gallery (3€) and the drinks.

Meeting people and introducing them to my home town and our way of living is my passion.
