The city of Porvoo is located on the southern coast of Finland, just 30 miles (48.3 km) east of Finland’s capital, Helsinki. The city is only one of six medieval towns in Finland, having first been mentioned in texts dating back to the 16th century. The area has been inhabited since the stone age and, in prehistoric times, the area was a popular route for commerce. In the 13th and 14th centuries, it was colonized by the Swedes, with many people in the area speaking still speaking Swedish today.
