Turku is known for historic sites, museums, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: step into the grandiose world of Turku Castle, examine the collection at Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo, buy something for everyone on your list at Turun Kauppahalli, and make a trip to Archangel Michael's church.
