Naantali is a town in south-western Finland, known as one of the most important tourist centres of the country. Turku Castle and Turku Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Kauppakeskus Mylly and Turun Kauppahalli. Step out of Naantali to go to Poytya and see Kurjenrahka National Park, which is approximately 54 minutes away. There's still lots to do: tour in harmony with nature at Bike Rental - by Carfield, hike along The Archipelago Trail, have some family-friendly fun at Moomin World, and find something for the whole family at Vaski Adventure Island.
