After lunch, you will go on a fascinating tour of Turku. This is a lovely harbor city that was created in the 13th century and is Finland’s oldest. Until 1809, the city functioned as Finland’s capital. Turku Cathedral from the 18th century, Turku Castle (Turunlinna) from the 16th century, and stunning architecture await you.
The 16th century was the most tumultuous time for the castle. It was the home of Duke Johan, who subsequently became King of Sweden. At the time, the court had over 600 inmates. This fortification is now home to the Turku Historical Museum.
This is one of Northern Europe’s most important historical monuments of urban culture. The museum has restored 18 artisan houses and over 30 craft workshops. Workshops are established up in the Luostarinmäki houses, where artisans work on their crafts. These homes survived the 1827 fire and were restored in their original locations. The museum reproduced scenes of urban life in Finland’s old capital. You may see the traditional customs and daily lives of the residents here. Some houses feature stores where you may buy handcrafted things.
Turku is well-known as a scientific and cultural center: two schools have been in operation here since the 13th century, and in 1640 the first university and the first printing business in Finland were established. Turku was the site of the first publication of a newspaper in Finland, which began in 1772. In 2011, the city, together with the Estonian capital, was designated as the European Capital of Culture.
After dinner, you may take a tour through the neighborhood stores and dine in one of the charming Finnish restaurants.
