In Turku Castle there is a delicated little church where I wanted to be married in Cristian way sometimes. The only problem is that there may be a mighty queu for that purpose.
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.
As one of Finlands oldest cities I just enjoy walking around this city, see places I never saw before, everything was new for me and I was really a tourist here.
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.
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.
The most ancient parts of this church were builded in the XII century.
During its history,in the medieval period, it has been enlarged with chapels on the sides for the catholic priests.
It is a big and interesting castle.
Inside very beautiful rooms and an historic museum on the medieval Turku.
Centre of Turku , where a majority of people go for 6 p.m on Vappu , surrounded by bars , which is just fine by me. In case you were wondering I can't think of anything to write.
Turku Judgement Church, or whatever the english name might be, is a majestic landmark near the river Aura. I recommend seeing it first-hand!
I already wrote about this, but Turku Castle is really nice place. There aren't that many castles in Finland, so every of item are very unique. And Turku Castel has it's history since 13th century.
Go and visit the castle, but i must warn you, it is near the harbor, so there are quite a lot of cranes and factories nearby!
The Turku Cathedral is the mother church of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Finland. It is now over 700 years old and the tower is about 110 metres high.
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.
Turku Market Square beckons locals and visitors alike with its colourful, wide-ranging and high-quality offerings and its unique atmosphere, changing along with seasons.
Welcome to a history of scents and senses. The wide-ranging services of 50 merchants of the covered market are at your service right in the heart of city.
