徐团Turku Cathedral is the main church of Finnish Lutheranism and the most famous medieval cathedral in Finland. The church was built in 1229, has been expanded many times, and reached its current size by the end of the 14th century. Because I came to this city on a Turku-Stockholm cruise, I only visited Turku Cathedral. The cathedral located on the Aura River is tall and simple, impressive, and the surrounding scenery is beautiful.
M44***33A very good museum, which mainly displays Finnish handicrafts. The entire museum is housed in more than a dozen sixteenth-century wooden cabins, with a feeling of traveling to the past. Although part of the pavilion did not open due to weekends when I went there, the tickets for Siou are generally worth it!
M44***33Forum Marinum Marinum Center is a large nautical museum. In addition to displaying Turku's shipping background knowledge from ancient times, there are three exhibition ships in the museum, the mine-laying boat Keihassalmi, the three-masted sailing ship Sigyn and the spectacular Finland Swan (Suomen Jousten).
M44***33The Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova Museum consists of two museums, one is an archaeological exhibition showing the characteristics of Turku life in the Middle Ages, and the other is an exhibition of modern art.
Finland is a beautiful Nordic country. The capital, Helsinki, is the largest city in the country and is well known internationally. The history of Helsinki is not too long. Before Helsinki, another city was the capital of Finland and it has now become a small town.
This city is called Turku, located on the southwest coast of Finland, close to Sweden and has been the capital of Finland until 1812. Turku was originally developed by the castle built by the Swedes. The city was established in 1229 and is the oldest city in the country with a population of 180,000.
In the 14th century, there were only seven cities in Finland, and Turku was the largest and most important city. The Turku Castle and the Turku Cathedral were established in the 13th century, and the first university in Finland, Turku University, was also built here.
Finland eventually moved to Helsinki, originating from the Russian and Swedish competition for Finland. In 1809, Russia began to rule Finland, when Turku was still the capital of Finland, but three years later, the capital went to Helsinki, which is closer to Russia.
Turku has many monuments and is an important tourist city in Finland. The most famous are the castles and cathedrals of Turku left over from the Middle Ages.
