Porvoo is a town with a population of 48 000, and it´s situated in eastern Uusimaa. It´s a popular turistic destination. I also live there. Here some pics taken by me in early March of this year:

Wooden houses in Porvoo are quite similar to wooden houses in Estonian smaller cities, IMO. Though they're in better shape, of course.

Yeah, but remember that that´s just early March, now (well, it has been quite cold and raining for some days) it´s much nicer with green trees and sunshine.
