The historical capital of Finland on the beautiful shores of the archipelago.

The river Aura is the heart and soul of Turku. This is where Turku was born, and a large part of city life - museums, sights, restaurants and cafes - still concentrates around the banks of the Aura. The streets of Turku bear the marks of life from the Middle Ages to the present day.
