Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.

There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Turku Castle, enjoy the scholastic atmosphere at Abo Akademi, see the interesting displays at Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum, and make a splash at JukuPark Turku.
