Pori-guided bus tour and shopping.
During the tour you will see and also visit some highlights -– get to know the unique old and beautiful city districts near the riverbank, the Jusélius Mausoleum and the Keski-Pori Church. The Jusélius Mausoleum in the Käppärä cemetary is one of the most popular sights in Pori. The mausoleum was built by local businessman Fritz Arthur Jusélius (1855–1930) for his daughter Sigrid (1887–1898) to be her last place of rest. Sigrid died of tuberculosis at the age of eleven. The famous Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela painted the interior including frescoes. The original frescoes were destroyed by fire in 1931. They were repainted by Gallen-Kallela’s son Jorma Gallen-Kallela in 1933–1939 and the mausoleum was opened again in 1941.
The Central Pori Church is the oldest and largest church in the Evangelical Lutheran Parish of Pori. The church was built in 1859–1863 based on Carl Johan von Heideken’s drawings.
