Turku is located in wonderful place at South-western Finland. It just by the sea and Aura-river goes through the city. Because of history of the city, there are many old historial buildnings in the city like Turku Castle and Handicrafts Museum Luostarinmäki. Next summer 2004, Turku will host the meeting of the Hanseatic towns and the city is celebreting it's 775th birthday.
Turku is real summer city, there happens lot of while sun is shining - many festivals and conserts. And you can just enjoy the day sitting by the river and eating fresh strawberries.
I can write hundred of pages about archipelago of Turku, but because of you I won't do it right here right now. I try to make own page for it. But my tip for you is to visit there.
