Turku City Library, Turku

4.7
Turku City Library includes multiple branches, but its main building represents a historical landmark in the city center. The building is actually a combination of old and new, with the old library from 1903 making up part of the structure while many modern conveniences, shelves, and design have all been added over the years. Locals visit to borrow books and international visitors come to admire the architecture. Inside the library browse exhibits of local artists' photography, paintings, and sculptures. A kids' area offers a play section full of toys and books. For Turku City Library and beyond, use our Turku online trip itinerary builder to get the most from your Turku vacation.

  • can be found in the raihallisia for työpöytyä opiskeöua and very comfortable, memorable Kids section. The old section is an atmospheric. You should depart from there too. A new section in a while so great. I do not think that the public money for a while to be built in this way, the wonderful people, after a short period of time.

  • Good reading room to read in the newspapers. The tables are your plugs for netbooks. The messages should be more songs in Helsinki, as it often gets to wait in line before you can be accessed to read a daily newspaper. The Café is a cozy and affordable, the library has a lockable lockers for goods/for coats.

  • A beautiful mix of modern and old library. Great selection of books.
  • A mix of old and new in the city of Turku. Functional building with respect to the historical values of the building. A must visit - especially if you have kids who can enjoy the kids section inside. The older guys could enjoy the fine architecture.
