Finland’s oldest city, and it’s gateway to the West, Turku is a thriving city whose rich cultural heritage is complemented by its forward-looking people.

Of the many great sights here, Turku Castle (the largest surviving medieval castle in all of Scandinavia) and Turku Cathedral are perhaps the most popular. Turku has almost 20 museums, including the Kylämäki Village of Living History and The Sibelius museum, the only museum devoted to music in Finland. Just a short drive from Turku is another great holiday destination, the sunny seaside town of Naantali. Its packed events calendar includes the oldest rock festival in Europe, Ruisrock, a city festival (Down By The Laituri), and the Turku Music Festival, which attracts internationally acclaimed classical musicians every year.
