On the banks of the Porvoonjoki River around 50 kilometres east of the Finnish metropolis of Helsinki is the picturesque town of Porvoo. The origin of today’s bishop’s town dates back to 1346 and after Turku, it is the second oldest town in Finland.

Porvoo was located on one of Scandinavia’s most important trading routes, the historic King’s Road, which became a pawn in the hands of the great powers.

In 1760, a devastating fire reduced the town to ashes. Unfortunately, only a few buildings survived the catastrophe. However, the historic centre of Porvoo, with its charming old buildings, has managed to maintain much of its original atmosphere.

Porvoo’s oldest building dates back to the 16th century, yet the town’s other buildings more than compensate for their lack of age by way of their pretty floral decorations.

The idyllic, narrow lanes and shopping streets as well as the colorful buildings, form a unique ensemble that is truly unforgettable. Porvoo is rightfully described as a Finnish treasure trove of mediaeval architecture!

Global Treasures - History's Most Protected Monuments - Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration. Places as unique and diverse as the wilds of East Africa's Serengeti, the Pyramids of Egypt, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Baroque cathedrals of Latin America make up our world's heritage. Join us as we explore one of these protected monuments.
