Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Rosala Viking Centre and The Church of the Holy Cross. We've included these beaches for you: Bellevue Beach and Vepsa Island. Explore Turku's surroundings by going to Pike's Gut (in Hanko), Bengtskar Lighthouse (in Rosala) and Rauma (Old Rauma & Rauman Merimuseo - Rauma Maritime Museum). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Archangel Michael's church, enjoy the sand and surf at Ispoinen Beach and Sauna, contemplate the long history of Turku Cathedral, and get engrossed in the history at Turku Castle.
