  • Turku a very special town in Finland, calm, peaceful, small. A bit gray, nice student life, night life. A nice hostel, good food. Easy to arrive and easy to take the train to whatever in Finland. But as part of Finland is very expensive, the currency is euros. Very recommendable for a quiet and a peaceful stay.
  • It's a huge stone church built in the middle-ages. An amazing experience. If you are in Turku it's a must-see as well as the Turku castle.
