Loviisa is a municipality and town of inhabitants on the southern coast of Finland. Start off your visit on the 8th (Sun): get some fabulous bargains at Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, get a taste of the local shopping with Nasin Kartanon Galleria, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Porvoo, then don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at Loviisan kirkko. On the 9th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: steep yourself in history at The Runeberg Home, see the interesting displays at Porvoo Museum/Holm House, stroll through Fredrika Runebergs Park, look for gifts at Riimikko, then appreciate the extensive heritage of Castle Hill, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at Runeberg Park.

Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Step off the beaten path and head to Hakaniemi Market and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Get some cultural insight at Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 46 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, stop by OMA Puoti, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
