The Port of Turku has prepared for preventing the spreading of the coronavirus. The Port follows the instructions of various authorities and those of the City of Turku. In order to prevent the coronavirus from spreading the following measures are in effect until further notice.
Cruise ships up to 230 metres long can berth in the inner harbour of the Port. From there shuttle buses operate to the city centre and back at regular intervals. The distance to the city centre is just three kilometres making it easy and convenient for cruise guests to explore Turku. Cruise ships with a length under 170 metres are usually berthed further downtown at the banks of the river Aura. A walk 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 restaurants, boat restaurants and much more. The riverside life has a special atmosphere all year round for both locals and tourists to enjoy.
