Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
On the 14th (Fri), examine the collection at Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo, pause for some serene contemplation at Archangel Michael's church, and then take a stroll through Naantali Old Town. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Turku Cathedral, then take an in-depth tour of Ett Hem Museum, then explore the historical opulence of Turku Castle, and finally learn about all things military at Forum Marinum Maritime Centre.

To find reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Turku online road trip planner.
