Turku is not only a charming summer city but also a vibrant and traditional population centre right by the sea in Southwestern Finland. Despite being the third-largest city in Finland, Turku has a small-town atmosphere. Around the centre everything is within walking or cycling distance. The residential districts are dotted around River Aurajoki, which passes through the city. Together with the neighbouring municipalities, Turku forms the centre of Southwest Finland with a multitude of services as well as work and study places.

Sea, culture and good food

Turku’s roots go deep in history. It was already Finland’s centre of education and a busy trade and shipping town in the Middle Ages. Today Turku is also a popular town for studies. Those into keeping fit will enjoy the city’s opportunities for sports and other physical activity from the urban parks to local nature trails, nature reserves and islands.

Turku is known particularly as a modern city of culture with theatres and lots of museums. Turku is also getting more and more famous as a food destination. There are several very classy restaurants by River Aurajoki, and fresh produce from the local area and islands is available around the year at the Turku Market Square and Market Hall.
