Finland - Turku & the South Coast (Chapter)
This is the Turku & the South Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Finland guidebook.
Beautiful Turku reclines along its grassy-banked river, flowing from Gothic cathedral to medieval castle. It was once the capital of Finland, and its fascinating history is matched by an equally attractive present. The south-coast towns, stretching either side of Helsinki, share Turku’s maritime heritage.
