On the 21st (Fri), steep yourself in history at The Runeberg Home, contemplate the long history of Castle Hill, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Porvoo, then don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Loviisan kirkko. Here are some ideas for day two: get some fabulous bargains at Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, then view the masterpieces at Nasin Kartanon Galleria, then see the interesting displays at Porvoo Museum/Holm House, and finally make a trip to Orthodox Church Porvoo.
