Turku City Library includes multiple branches, but its main building represents a historical landmark in the city center.

  • The library consists of two buildings, old and modern new. When my son was little, we loved coming here as a family. There are plenty of nooks and crannies where you can spend time for all tastes with a book, magazine or table with a table game. There's a little coffee shop in the library.

  • It is located along the river, close to the cathedral and the medieval market. The first floor is a space of the magazine and the PC, and there is a power supply, too. You are free to enter the museum.
