Porvoo is Finland's second oldest town, located in the eastern Uusimaa-region on the coast of the Gulf of Finland, ca 50 km east of Helsinki. It is a beautiful city full of history.

The Porvoo parish and the church originated in the 13th century. The Porvoo Castle was built on the hill in the late 1300s and the town was named Borgå ("castle river") in Swedish.

Six towns were established in Finland during the Middle Ages. Some of them grew to be towns without any official order having been issued. This was the case with Porvoo, which got the town rights in the 14th century.

Porvoo was born at the junction of the sea and the river, a place where people from surrounding villages used to come to trade their merchandise. Goods from Europe travelled via Porvoo to the north, and people from the north brought furs and other commodities to Porvoo, to be transported via Tallinn to Central Europe.

The wealthiest and most influential townsmen were merchants of German origin. The riverside storehouses surrounded a medieval harbour into which salt and other products were imported. The full export rights of a staple town were first conceded to Porvoo as early as the 16th century. Since the rise of mercantilism in the 17th century, butter, timber, dried fish, linen and tar were items exported from Porvoo.

The 700-year marriage between Sweden and Finland ended after the Finnish War 1808-1809 when Finland was annexed to Russia as an autonomous Grand Duchy. Alexander I, the Czar of Russia, convened the Diet in Porvoo in 1809.This was an important cornerstone in the history of Finland, starting the progress towards independence. As a result of the Porvoo Diet, Finland was allowed to keep its religion, its constitution dating from the Swedish era, and the rights of its estates.

Porvoo has developed into an eastern node of metropolitan Helsinki. The population already counts almost 50,000.

Tapiola is a district of Espoo on the south coast of Finland, and is one of the major urban centres of Espoo. The name Tapiola is derived from Tapio, who is the forest god of Finnish mythology.

The foundation stone of Tapiola garden city was laid in 5 September 1953. Tapiola was built in the 1950s and 1960s by the Housing foundation, Asuntosäätiö, established by six social political/trade organizations. The aim of the Housing Foundation was to overcome housing shortage, offer housing for all social classes, raise standard and create well-planned park and garden areas.

Tapiola is Finland’s first modern suburb. Its architecture represents modernism and many architectural innovations were introduced there. The city district was planned by a group of prominent Finnish architects. Tapiola has gained national and interntational reputation for its architecture. According to the Finnish Museovirasto, Tapiola is a unique phenomenon in the world.

Today over 40,000 inhabitants (of which 18,000 living in downtown) populate the vivid city district of Tapiola.
