What are we going to do
We explore Old Porvoo with the photos taken by Natalia Linsén around years 1888-1910. After studying photography in Viipuri Natalia Linsén founded in 1888 the first permanent photography studio in Porvoo at the age of 44. She diligently immortalized Porvoo's milieu. The pictures show small boutiques, workshops, public buildings, and homes from merchants and rock-bottomed "cottages." And best of all, most the scenery is still in place. Natalia Linsén was thus a great rescuer of the cultural heritage of Porvoo and of the Finnish urban environment and life those days. Natalia Linsén was a forerunner in many ways and she was one of the first professional famale photographers in Finland.

Old Town of Porvoo has cobble stone -allies and some hills, so please wear low heals. At wintertime, the old town is slippery.
Kävely Porvoossa jopa ylitti odotukset. Kokonaiskuvaa, tarinoita, historiaa, nykypäivää. Tosi ihana kokonaisuus! Pituus oli juuri hyvä, vaikka yksi kommentti sen jälkeen olikin, että olisi voinut jatkaa vaikka miten pitkään.
We appreciated the guide tour and are very pleased with all the interesting information we received. Now we know so much about beautiful Porvoo. Thank you :)
