This place is truly unique! A hostel built into an old ship. Located within walking distance from the city, a great alternative for cost conscious travelers. You feel like in the 60's.
The boat also has a sauna which we enjoyed.
Great apartments to rent 2km from city centre, near Turku castle. Totally new, comfy beds.great for groups or a family.
Radisson Blu Marina Palace Hotel
Good hotel in great central location by the river. Friendly staff and very good breakfast.
New large hotel beautifully restored into the former Kakola prison. Impressive location near city centre. Unique!

Popular lunch buffet next to Suomen Joutsen boat and near the Turku castle. Food for me was over priced and average for lunch, but location is nice and it has a terrace by the river too😊
Amazing food and service. Truly great food, had eg beef tartar, octopus and the house potatoes. Great desert too😁😍
Maybe the most known and definitely one of the most popular and great restaurants in Turku. Italian focus.
Restaurant by the river where we stopped by for some wine at the heated outdoor terrace.
Nice cafe with outdoor and indoor seating by the river. Great coffee and food. Voted best cafe in Turku.
Chain of tasty burger places. Luxurious fast food, meal around 13e.
Quite a party place, mostly under 30y crowd
Excellent food during Sunday brunch, truly great value. Book your table on advance!
Great pizza, great wine list. Risotto was also good but nothing special.
Modern European Restaurant
Went here for after dinner drinks. Super popular, both indoor and outdoor seating.
Popular nightclub for the 30+ crowd
One of the best restaurants in the country offering excellent service and food. Serves full menu which maybe isn't cheep but worth it!

Art museum osting changing exhibitions. Located on a hill in a beautiful building just few blocks from the main square.
Main pedestrian street in the centre, with shops and restaurants. Starts from market square.
Central Market square that's largely under construction at the moment. Some stalls still selling different local produce.
Beautiful old huge sailing boat acting as a museum. Name translates to "Finnish swan".
Only checked out this gun boat from the outside but would be cool to visit inside.
Sea museum hosted in couple of buildings. Overpriced (17€ for adults) but worth a visit if you have the museum card.
Turku Castle (Turun linna)
Maybe the most famous sight in Turku. Has also a nice garden. Definitely visit also indoors and get dive into the interesting history of the place.
Turku Cathedral (Turun Tuomiokirkko)
Stone church built largely in the middle ages is an impressive sight in central Turku.
Small shopping mall right in the city centre.
Beautiful old market hall with restaurants, shops, etc.
Summer time small ferry takes you to Ruissalo
Walking trails with beautiful seaview, this area is great for outdoor activities for all ages.
