Midsummer's Day 2010

by Limeypop

My work in Turku will end on 24 June, but I will not leave until 26 June, 2010. I understand that Finns like to go to a cottage with their family at Midsummer, but will there be any festivities in or near Turku that I could attend as a tourist? Any other suggestions? Thank you so much!

The local tourist information office is your friend for all matters like this. http://www.turku.fi/Public/default.aspx?culture=en-US&contentlan=2&nodeid=8726

There seems to be festival called Sieravuoren juhannus, with bus-trasfer from Turku, but I think it´s quite full of rock, Finnish rock mainly. I think people there are somewhere between 18-40 years old. But it´s here-sorry only in Finnish:
http://www.sieravuori.fi/ohjelma/

Maybe you would like Naantali Juhannus? This is also only in Finnish, but I can tell something:
http://www.naantali.fi/tapahtumat/muut_tapahtumat/fi_FI/juhannus_2010/?u4.highlight=

It starts at 18.00 o´clock (at friday) with flag-ceremony and there´s folk-musicans and folk-music-dancers.

at 21.00 there will be "juhannustanssit", where you can also dance,not just watch dancing ;) i belive they play typical Finnish waltz,tango,humppa ( there´s no English translation, I found this info:.A type of music from Finland, related to jazz and very fast foxtrot.) and similar.

at 23.00 they will have a bonfire.

It sound like typical old-fashioned Finnsih Juhannus. I checked from Finnish forums. Turku might be quite "dead" at juhannus. In good weather people go to Ruissalo to have a picnic.many people go to naantali, to Ahvenanmaa or most go to cottages-it´s most popular way to spend juhannus.
If you decide to go to Naantali, remeber that buses and trains don´t go at night. I´m not sure in Turku, but In Tampere the last ones go around 14.00 o´clock at friday and next ones go at sunday. Might be cheapest choise to rent a small car? Or stay whole friday to sunday there at some hotel-if you still find free rooms.

I agree with Turska, Sieravuoren juhannus is a fun event.

Travel Tips for Turku

The Turku Castle

by lumituisku

When you visit Turku, you should absolutely visit the medieval castle. There are guided tours in there, but you can also choose to wander around by yourself. It's an amazing place with lots of paintings etc. There's also a small church inside the castle.

Old Turku - Bits of history

by sabsi

Turku is Finland's oldest town (official foundation was 1229) and it used to be the capital for 500 years.

In 1812 tsar Alexander I moved the capital to Helsinki because in his opinion Turku was too close to Sweden.

The cathedral was built in the 13th century. From its clocktower the bells "declare" christmas peace every christmas eve.

In 1827 a fire destroyed the whole city apart from Luostarinmäki - which is an area which is located on a hill.

The town was rebuilt after plans of C. L. Engel. Yes, that's the same guy who designed Senate Square in Helsinki.

Turku Tip

by nathasha

this beautiful and slightly crispy day the water of the river AURA was just disappearing in the air as a continuous steam. in the midwinter the sun comes up at 10am and rises over th roofs only for a while - at 2pm it'll already get dark!!! in the very north of finland the day is even shorter than 4 hours. but there is charm in this, the shadows are so long when sun is low, and when it gets dark you have a good reason get cosy and burn alot of candles :))

In Turku there are many...
