Museum of the month

On the 5th of February, the birthday of Finland’s national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg is celebrated in Porvoo in an atmosphere rich in memories. In schools and on many work-places a special treat, Runeberg cake, is enjoyed, sometimes accompanied with a verse.  In Porvoo, where the Runebergs lived for a long time, the day is celebrated in many ways: modern writers pay visits to schools, and the winner of a highly regarded literature prize is announced.  One of the most delightful events is the torchlight procession attended by members of Porvoo volunteer fire brigade, a tradition dating back to 1878. While Runeberg still lived, students celebrated his birthday by gathering in the morning under his window for a song. Members of the volunteer fire brigade later joined in.  After Runeberg’s death a quire, Borgå Sångarbröder, today called Runebergskören BSB, came in place of the group of students. In addition, the programme was scheduled to take place later in the evening, requiring torches for light on the street. The procession to the poet’s grave, statue and home, the beat of drums and the quire singing the Finnish national anthem in a winter evening make for an unforgettable experience.  You are welcome to join in!
Runeberg’s home continues to be a popular place to visit. In winter, the dimly lit rooms offer a unique feeling of peace. On Runeberg’s birthday the house is lit with live candles and decorated with Lilies of the Valley.
