Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Turku Castle and Forum Marinum Maritime Centre. Popular historic sites such as Turku Cathedral and Archangel Michael's church are in your itinerary. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Naantali Old Town, kick back and relax at Vepsa Island, let little ones run wild at Adventure Park, and examine the collection at Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo.

To find where to stay, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Turku online travel planner.

Bristol, UK to Turku is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Bristol to Turku due to the time zone difference.
