Naantali

Naantali is a town in south-western Finland, known as one of the most important tourist centres of the country. Isokari Lighthouse and Naantali Church will appeal to history buffs.

Get out of town with these interesting Naantali side-trips: Bonk Museum (in Uusikaupunki), Maritime Exhibition Sjofartshuset (in Nagu) and Jurmo Island (in Korpo). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Louhisaari Manor, make a trip to Kultaranta Garden, and take an in-depth tour of Naantali museum.
