Turku Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Provincial capital of southwest Finland and second largest entry point into the country after Helsinki, Turku ("market place" in old Finnish) developed around a trading post at the mouth of River Aurajoki, in a region boasting some of the country’s oldest traditions.

The river bisects the city and seven hills provide a wide variety of landscapes.
