Loviisa

Loviisa ©
Loviisa is a municipality and town of inhabitants on the southern coast of Finland. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Cathedral of Porvoo and Ungern and Rosen Fortresses. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Porvoo Old Town and Loviisan kirkko. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Castle Hill, Porvoo Museum/Holm House, &more). There's still lots to do: get some fabulous bargains at Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, take a leisurely stroll along Laivasilta, see the interesting displays at Loviisa Maritime Museum, and look for gifts at Riimikko.

To see ratings, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Loviisa driving holiday planning website.
