Old town, but pretty funky

Turku, a pearl of the Baltic, is Finland’s number one summer destination. The most numerous archipelago in the world stretches all the way from Turku to Åland and onto Stockholm offering the scenery of tens of thousands of islands known as the Archipelago Sea. The port is located at walking distance from the city centre and a stroll along the river offers cruise guests plenty to see and do, from the medieval Turku castle and cathedral, the maritime centre, museums and art galleries to high-quality restaurants, boat restaurants and much more. The riverside life has a special atmosphere all year round for both locals and tourists to enjoy.
