Turku Guide

Turku is a city located on the south west coast of Finland and lies at the mouth of the River Aura. The city's history stretches back to the 13th century which makes it Finland's oldest city and was at one point the most important population centre in the country. Between 1809 and 1812 Turku was Finland's capital city and continued to be Finland's largest city until the end of the 1840's.

Although Turku today does not quite have the same level of national importance as it used to have it is still the regional capital and an important base for commerce in northern Europe. The city has been the site of many of Finland's most important events and has had a significant influence of the country's history. Turku was awarded European Capital of Culture for 2011 along with the Estonian city of Tallin. Also, in 1996 Turku was declared the official Christmas City of Finland.

Due to its location, Turku is a notable commercial and passenger seaport with over three million passengers travelling through its port each year to Stockholm and Mariehamn.
