    The river is cutting the city to two parts. It is always nice to walk along by the river. Many coffee shops and restaurants are on the way.

    The Cathedral is very large, inside you can see lots of reminders from the time of the Swedish kingdom and the time Finland was a part of that kingdom.

    Market Place

    The Market Place is the heart of Turku. People gather there not only for buying things, but for meeting each others, too. All the busses drive through it, so it's easy to get from suburbs.

    An interesting place to spend a couple of hours and find something new about the history of south-western Finland. There is also a nice coin & medal collection in the castle.
