Loviisa

Loviisa ©
Loviisa is a municipality and town of inhabitants on the southern coast of Finland. Visiting Valkmusa National Park and Huutjarvi Lake will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at Cathedral of Porvoo and Castle Hill. Venture out of the city with trips to Hiidenkirnut (in Askola) and Porvoo (The Runeberg Home, Runeberg Park, &more). There's still lots to do: visit a coastal fixture at Söderskärin majakka, get some fabulous bargains at Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Orthodox Church Porvoo.
