Porvoo

Porvoo (Swedish name Borgå) is a town of about 45,000 inhabitants, situated on the south coast of Finland approximately 50 kilometres east of Helsinki.

The town is famed for its many wooden buildings, and for its medieval cathedral which gave its name to the Porvoo Communion - an inter-church agreement between a number of Anglican and Lutheran denominations. Its sister city in the US is Hancock, Michigan.
