Poorvoo is about 50km East of Helsinki. We travelled on a coach to Poovoo. This city has an Old Town which dates back as far as the 13th century. Except for the medieval cathedral, all the buildings are wooden structures, painted in the same colours as the grand buildings in St Petersburg, Russia - blue, golden yellow, delicate pink with white trims.
We had the most delectable and memorable lunch in a restaurant in the Old Town of Poovoo. I ordered pumpkin soup because I wanted something light. It was more than light - it was delicate and frothy with unexpected little textured pieces that were zingy in the mouth. Real designer cuisine. Philip had divine pork belly. So wish I had recorded the name of the restaurant but I have taken photos of these two dishes.
