Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Start off your visit on the 9th (Mon): find something for the whole family at Vaski Adventure Island and then tour the pleasant surroundings at The Archipelago Trail. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Turku Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Ett Hem Museum, then step into the grandiose world of Turku Castle, then grab your bike and head to Bike Rental - by Carfield, and finally get your game on at Moomin World.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
