Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Turku Castle and Luostarinmaen Kasityolaismuseo. Get outdoors at The Archipelago Trail and Ispoinen Beach and Sauna.

There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kultaranta Garden, see the interesting displays at Kylamaki Village of Living History, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Turku Cathedral.
