Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns.
Attractions like Turku Castle and Turku Cathedral make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Turku side-trips: St Olaf's Church in Tyrvaa (in Sastamala), Talonpoikaismuseo Yli-Kirra (in Punkalaidun) and Tammelan kirkko (in Tammela). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Naantali Old Town, brush up on your military savvy at Forum Marinum Maritime Centre, get engrossed in the history at Forssa Museum, and examine the collection at Louhisaari Manor.

To find traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Turku route planning site.
