Hey Beautiful people,
Let me whisk you to a vintage castle. Turku, A 13th-century city which used be Finnish Capital & has an old world charm hidden from the world.
If I could describe cuppa noddles and movie nights as a place, a place as laid back as the feeling of spending Sundays in bed or diving into an old book ona a winter night. That place for me is Turku.
We are glad we stumbled upon Turku while booking a cruise on our Swedish summer dream. It was such a magical day with the sun shining bright, people running a marathon, the crowd cheering for runners, families a having picnic on their yachts in their brown river Aura.
I never heard of this place before I visited it even after been to Finland twice before. Chances are you also might not hear of the same, its world’s best-kept secret for me.
You can reach Turku via Car, bus or train from Helsinki and from neighboring countries like Sweden, Estonia or Latvia, you can catch a cruise. It can easily be your weekend getaway if staying in any of the locations. Its not very costly and has ample farmer markets for you to relish coffee & Bagels.
Along with Turku, we also visited the Aland Islands, an Archipelago in the Bay of Finland.
We enjoyed our day soaking in Finnish architectural history, Gothic architecture, Lush green & Romantic exteriors and lots of Sun.
Another stop is, Turku Castle. A Medieval time cobbled stone largest surviving buidling in Finland.
Hope you enjoyed this new city through my words. Do share if you have been the city.
