What is Live Like a Local?

What is there to do in Turku and what is it that the locals really like? Live Like a Local is a guide that brings together helpful tips and suggestions for the Turku region, with both regular attractions as well as activities to help you create your unique, custom programme. For each day of the week we have collected our own suggestions that are easy to include.

The contents of Live Like a Local is seasonally based, so that most of what is scheduled for June will apply in July and August, allowing you to extend your trip that little bit longer.

Turku Market Hall is a popular shopping spot among locals. You’ll often see residents having lunch or coffee there with friends. The raisin sausage – a speciality of Turku – is well worth trying, and other delicacies, including the Kiss my Turku cake, are found at Finland’s award-winning bakery MBakery Piece of Cake café.
