On the 9th (Thu), browse the exhibits of Turku Castle, then kick back and relax at Ispoinen Beach and Sauna, and then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Kurjenrahka National Park. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: tour the pleasant surroundings at The Archipelago Trail, get lost in a book at Turku City Library, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Turku Cathedral.
