The best tips for a weekend break

The heart of the city is formed by the Market Square and the Aura river and riverbank within a short walking distance. It is easy to move around in Turku, and distances are short.

Unique restaurant experiences


Turku has one of Finland’s most interesting selections of restaurants. Many of the best restaurants in the city, such as Mami, Pinella and Tårget, can be found in the historical milieu by the Aura river. The legendary Kaskis is a restaurant for which it is worth travelling longer distances. Turku is also known for its distinctive pubs. Pubs established in old institutions, such as Panimoravintola Koulu, Uusi Apteekki, The Old Bank and The WaterLoo, are destinations worth a visit. The Aura river restaurant boats extend their offering in the summertime.

Attractions on both sides of the river

On one side of the Aura river are the Cathedral, Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art and the Turku City Theatre. On the other, the Market Square, the library, the Forum Marinum and Turku Castle. Also, Logomo brings an interesting addition to the city’s cultural offering.
