Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Forum Marinum Maritime Centre and Turku Cathedral. There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Turku Castle, take an in-depth tour of Ett Hem Museum, enjoy some diversion at Adventure Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Henry's Ecumenical Art Chappel.

For more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Turku holiday site.
