Delightful Vasaramäki is a beautiful garden suburb near the city centre. An area well known for its particularly lush landscapes, its functionalist style as well as the former parish hall designed by Erik Bryggman.
Vasaramäki has several parks and forest areas, where you can relax just a few miles from the bustle of the city centre. This is also where the Turku Cemetery is located.
The district takes its name from the merchant C.G. Hammar, who leased the area of land in the 19th Century. The Swedish name is Hammarbacka translated as Vasaramäki in Finnish.
