The southwest corner of Finland is a veritable treasure chest for the visitor: here you will find eye-pleasing archipelago landscapes, modern city life, the peacefulness of the countryside and high-quality services.
In Turku and the Southwest-Finland region it's easy for the traveller to get around in his or her own vehicle, as well as on public transportation. Cities and towns have an efficient public transportation system, and longer distances can be covered in the comfort of long-distance buses and trains.
The Castle and Cathedral are the two poles of historic Turku, between which just about every important site in the city can be found.
The City of Turku came into existence at Koroinen, a few kilometres from the Turku market square. Trading took place on this historic site as early as in the 1150's, and in 1229, the bishopric was transferred there as well. The year 1229 is also regarded as the year in which the City of Turku was founded.
Finland’s oldest city Turku is the starting point of the world’s most beautiful archipelago.
The 2011 European Capital of Culture’s sights include a castle and a cathedral. The 40 000 island archipelago begins at the mouth of Turku’s River Aurajoki and stretches all the way to Stockholm.
