Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
On the 18th (Wed), take in the spiritual surroundings of Turku Cathedral, let the kids burn off some steam at Adventure Park, then see the interesting displays at Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum, then get engrossed in the history at Turku Castle, and finally get lost in a book at Turku City Library.

Plan my trip to Turku with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Turku is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Gulf Standard Time (GST) to Eastern European Time (EET), which is usually a -2 hour difference. In July, Turku is cooler than Dubai - with highs of 24°C and lows of 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) so you can drive to Helsinki.

On the 20th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, then soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, then make a trip to Senate Square, and finally explore the world behind art at Design Museum.
