Historical Porvoo is a charming little town with well-preserved wooden houses. It is located 30 miles from Helsinki and dates from the 14th century. The tour includes Porvoo Old Church, Town Hall Square,delightful little shops, and craftsmen' workshops. There will be some free time for a walk in the Old Town. Your guide will recommend a small charming place to have lunch. Enjoy the walk by the cobblestone streets and the Old Bridge from which you can take unique pictures of the old town.

The town plan is from the Middle Ages, the low small houses, picturesque yards and narrow streets form a historically unique wooden town milieu. The symbols of Porvoo - the red warehouses on the riverbanks - tell the story of seafaring and trading.

After your visit to Porvoo you will return to Helsinki for the city tour. You are going to drive along Esplanadi Street, down famous Mannerheim street, which is the main boulevard, passing by the Presidential Palace, the National Museum and Finlandia Hall (designed by the famous architect Alvar Aalto) Opera House, Finlandia Concert Hall and the Parliament Building.

You won't miss the Olympic Stadium (1952 Olympics were held here). There will be a great photo opportunity in Sibelius Park, a famous Helsinki's sight, Sibelius Monument constructed from hundreds of steel pipes honoring the great Finnish composer Lean Sibelius.

Then you are going to visit the Rock Church. This unique church is a highlight for most visitors to Helsinki and is considered to be one of the Europe's most interesting churches. It was carved out of solid rock from the side of a mountain and is topped by a copper dome. The interior was excavated and built into the rock but is bathed in natural light entering through the glazed dome. The church is used frequently as a concert venue due to its excellent acoustic. The acoustic quality is ensured by the rough, rock surfaces. You will also pass by Uspensky Cathedral, Market Square and the heart of Helsinki- Central Station.
