Music on the waterfront 1

Experience the start of the Finnish festival summer, a seaside ambience and two mediaeval towns on a single journey. This route will transport chamber music lovers from one era and mood to another along the south coast, with unforgettable concert venues ranging from the abbey church of Naantali to archipelago churches and the newly completed Art Factory culture and congress centre in Porvoo. It also provides easy opportunities to visit important sites along the old Kings Road, such as the mediaeval ironworks village of Fiskars. This is also a great route for boaters!
