Turku

Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Bring the kids along to Turku Castle and Turku City Library. Step out of Turku with an excursion to Teijo National Park in Pernio--about 1h 20 min away. And it doesn't end there: get your game on at Moomin World, get in on the family fun at Vaski Adventure Island, enjoy the sand and surf at Vepsa Island, and ponder the design of Harmonia.
