Loviisa is a municipality and town of inhabitants on the southern coast of Finland. Venture out of the city with trips to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, &more) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sea views from Söderskärin majakka, look for gifts at Riimikko, and pause for some serene contemplation at Loviisan kirkko.

To see reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Loviisa tour planner.
