Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
You've now added Turku Medieval Market to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Thu): see the interesting displays at Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum, explore the galleries of Ett Hem Museum, brush up on your military savvy at Forum Marinum Maritime Centre, then explore the historical opulence of Turku Castle, and finally add some entertainment to your itinerary with Turku Medieval Market. Keep things going the next day: get lost in a book at Turku City Library, then delve into the distant past at Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Turku Cathedral.
