Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
We've included these beaches for you: Ispoinen Beach and Sauna and Vepsa Island. Museum-lovers will get to explore Turku Castle and Forum Marinum Maritime Centre. Step out of Turku to go to Poytya and see Kurjenrahka National Park, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Turun Kauppahalli, let little ones run wild at Adventure Park, examine the collection at Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Turku Cathedral.

To see maps, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Turku trip maker app .

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Turku is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Rio de Janeiro to Turku due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Rio de Janeiro in January, with highs in Turku at -3°C and lows at -9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to drive to Kimito Island.
