Porvoo, Finland - 15th May 2009

By: Delenna

Here I am! In Finland! My first tv-destination! I was lucky as my host was on her way to do some sightseeing when she picked me up from the post office. So, here I am on Castle Hill (Linnamäki) in Porvoo. As the name reveals here has been a castle hundreds of years ago. That's also where the settlement in this area began: from the castle spreading everywhere. Now there's only the hill and castle moats left. The view to the town is really nice! You can see the Old Porvoo and the bridges crossing the river.

This also the place Porvoo got its name from. Porvoo is Borgå in Swedish: Borg (castle) + å (river). The finnish way of saying it is then Porvoo.
