Old town, but pretty funky

Turku, a pearl of the Baltic, is Finland’s number one summer destination. Bisecting Turku city centre, the river Aura flows through the most beautiful cityscape; past great restaurants, cafes bursting with atmosphere, perceptive works of city art as well as fascinating museums. The mouth of the river opens out to meet the tens of thousands of islands known as the Scandinavian Islands. The most numerous archipelago in the world stretches all the way from Turku to Åland and onto Stockholm.
