I invite you to Old Porvoo to hear stories about our history but also about the way of living nowadays in Porvoo. In my HOME 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?"
In the Art Factory we get to know about modern art as well. On the way there we pass several public works of art as well.
We also stop for a refreshment break during our walk.
Additional cost: admission fee in the Town Hall (8€) and the drinks.
About Birgitta - the Doer
I have worked in tourism business all my life and I am very interested in history, in art and culture and in PEOPLE. I know "everyone" in Porvoo and during my walks we may stop for short chats with the locals.
Meeting people and introducing them to my home town and our way of living is my passion.
The walk is short, max 2 km. Take comfortable shoes for the cobble stone streets.
