Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Forum Marinum Maritime Centre has been added to your itinerary. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Turku Castle and Turku Cathedral. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Old Rauma and Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova. Venture out of the city with trips to Rauma (Marela Museum House, Rauman Merimuseo - Rauma Maritime Museum, &more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo, pause for some serene contemplation at Archangel Michael's church, get a new perspective on nature at Turku Biological Museum, and get lost in a book at Turku City Library.

To find photos, reviews, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Turku trip itinerary website.

If you are flying in from Poland, the closest major aiport is Turku Airport. In July in Turku, expect temperatures between 24°C during the day and 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) to allow time to take a train to Tampere.
