Explore Turku’s city scene on a walk 3.5 km long from the Turku Cathedral to Turku Castle. Over a walking tour of a couple of hours you’ll get an excellent overview of Turku’s history and present day. Begin at Turku Cathedral. When you stand on the steps of the church and gaze toward the river, you’ll see the final stop of the walking tour – 1 Turku Castle to the left. Cross Uudenmaankatu street to the Great Old Square. At the edge is Brinkkala Mansion where the Declaration of the Christmas Peace, an important tradition for many from Turku and Finland, is given from the balcony every year. Looking up from Brinkkala’s balcony standing on the hill is the Vartiovuori Observatory. Adjacent is Luostarnimäki Handicraft Museum, which offers a great setting for traditional handicraft demonstrations during summer. Walk from the Old Square towards the river and you’ll see Turku’s oldest restaurant, Pinella. The view in front is of 2 Vähätori square, flanked by restaurants, with the old and new coming together nicely at the library quarter. Built in 2007 the newer part of the 3 City Library building offers all that you’d expect from a modern library, for free every day. The library also hosts many cultural events, from exhibitions to movie nights. Located between Vähätori and the Aura Bridge are many good restaurants including Gustavo, Tiirikkala, Mami and Smör as well as wine bars E. Ekblom and Tintå. Along the riverside of Vähätori is also Låna, from where you can hire an electric picnic boat to cruise up the river. Continuing along Itäinen Rantakatu street to the left of Pinella you’ll come to the Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova museum. Read the information board outside to get a picture of how the museum combines events, history and modern art. During summer you’ll see big, colourful eiders bobbing on the water. The environmental artwork of Reima Nurmiko, they were introduced during the 2011 Capital of Culture year to liven up the landscape. Further on, you’ll see the Library Bridge for pedestrians and bicycles, with modern light architecture that helps to accentuate the national landscape environment. At the other end of the library bridge is the sculpture by 4 An-

Mika Kaurismäki’s movie The Girl King was filmed in 2014 in Turku Castle, among other locations.

Here you are very close to the New Pharmacy pub, the favourite hangout of fictional detective Jussi Vares. Further up Kaskenmäki hill you’ll find Kaskis. The restaurant of master chef Erik Mansikka, Kaskis was rated the public’s favourite as soon as it opened in spring 2014. Be sure to reserve a table in good time! Cross the river at the Aura Bridge, look up the street and you’ll see a large grey stone building at the top of the hill. The Turku Art Museum stands tall over the city. The tour continues left, and along Läntinen Rantakatu, between the Aura Bridge and Theatre Bridge, development has begun on a row of appetis-

ing street food kiosks. On the opposite shore are a number of anchored boats. These riverboats are a speciality of Turku’s restaurant culture. There are total of 12 restaurant riverboats, full to the brim on a warm summer’s evening. Continuing along the western shore the next site is the Pharmacy Museum, housed in Qwensel House built in the 1700’s. When walking across the Theatre Bridge, at the other end is the renovation of Turku City Theatre, due to be completed in Autumn 2017. Located behind is the Biological Museum in a splendid Art Nouveau building, the Sports Park and the Paavo Nurmi Stadium. After the city theatre and government offices on the river’s eastern shore you will see the Wäinö Aaltonen Museum of Art. 9


2 For people from Turku it is important which side of the River Aura you are from. But which one is which? ”This side” is the side with the Cathedral. ”The other side” is where all the newer stuff like the square and the Market Hall are located.

5 On the hill behind the museum stands the old windmill, at the foot of which is the Samppalinna Open Air Theatre. Here you cross the river over the Myllysilta Bridge, whose predecessor nearly collapsed into notoriety in 2010. At either end are four anthropomorphic bronze statues by Kari-Petteri Kakko entitled Star Gazing. Once passed Martinsilta Bridge the River Aura view changes. There are no more bridges meaning even large vessels have passage to this point. Here, in front of Vaakahuone guests are taken out to sea aboard boats such as Steamship S/S Ukkopekka and M/S Rudolfina. Moving forward, you are greeted by an authentic slice of Turku. The little orange ferry 5 Föri has linked the riversides for more than a hundred years. Jump aboard – it’s free! Turn your 10

back to Föri and the river and you’ll see a parkland slope rising to the top of a hill. This is 6 Kakolanmäki, where standing at the summit is the stone fortress in which Finland’s most notorious criminals were carrying out their sentences as late as 2007. Now Kakola is being converted into residential use and you can move freely about the area. Watch over the city scenery from the hill and enjoy a coffee and the exhibition that sheds light on the prison’s history in Café Kakola. Along the west bank next to Föri is the Turku Guest Harbour. At the other end is a huge tail fin rising from the river; Achim Kühn’s art work Harmony. Next stop is Varvintori sqaure. At the edge is a former rope factory, renovated for use by the Turku Conservatory and Arts


4 CHANGE THE WAY  YOU SEE TURKU Strolling on the shores of the riverside is a classic Turku pastime. It’s nice to see the river from the banks, but it also works the other way round. Find a means to float on the River Aura, nowadays there are many possibilities. LÅNA. On the shore by Vähätori square you can hire a Låna electric boat. The easy to use little boats let you drive freely between the Cathedral Bridge and the habour. lanaturku.fi JAKKE. The pleasant restaurant boat operates in summer between Forum Marinum and the Aura Bridge. Jump aboard at any of the seven stops along the way. jakkejokilautta.fi

Academy. Micha Ullman’s North is a part of the Turku city sculpture project, as are a series of illuminated numbers on the Turku Energia chimney. The work is known as the Fibonacci Sequence 1–55 by Mario Merz. Continuing the tour you’ll notice the approaching port. Here Turku Castle is visible, the monument marking the end of the journey. Nowadays you can admire the castle as well as the permanent and temporary exhibitions. However, before the castle you’ll pass the sailing ships the Suomen Joutsen, the Sigyn barque as well as other museum ships of the Maritime Centre Forum Marinum. Also moored here is the hostel ship S/S Bore. It has a wonderful history as a cruise ship from the 1960’s as well as an atmospheric interior of brass and mahogany. •

FÖRI. The cute little city ferry chugs from east to west of the River Aura between the areas of Martin and Kakolanmäki. SUP-BOARD OR HOT TUB. Have a calm day paddling on the Aura by renting a SUP-board from riverboat restaurant Katariina. From Katariina you can also sail up the Aura on a floating hot tub. ravintolalaivakatariina.fi

In 2017 Turku celebrates two important anniversaries. The Finland 100 anniversary as well as the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, bringing to the city a diverse programme that reaches city residents and visitors regardless of age, wealth or areas of interest. Museums, galleries, theatres and stages all provide a packed programme, where you can find something for everyone. A HISTORY OF DRAMA – FROM PAST TO PRESENT

The turning points of Finnish independence are put into words and actions in Turku throughout the year. Performances are located all over the city, from the River Aura shores to the cosy alcoves of the city’s theatres. Science is a part of our everyday lives, and it explains a lot of things. The purpose of the first Finnish language university was to empower the nation and nourish its civilisation. Science and Theatre – With all the Senses is a dramatic show from Turku University’s Student Theatre about the past and present of Finnish science. Turku has, throughout its history, served as an important transport route and centre for industrial development. Aurajoella (On the Aura) is a theatre play sailing through Turku’s industrial history. The performance of the play by TEHDAS Theatre is seen in Forum Marinum’s courtyard. The play is based on a broadside ballad of the same name from the turn of the 20th Century. So what does Finland look like today? How have we come to be where we are now? At the Samppalinna Summer Theatre is the play August-July-June, a comedy about the changes in Finland and post-war history through the eyes of the baby-boom generation.

14

The Sata Lasissa dance theatre play engages concepts of Finnish idenitity, Fennomania and fear of its antithesis, Svecomans, all in the same performance. Through this interpretation by 1 Dance Theatre Eri, the play looks at how these ideas and perspectives have developed over the last hundred years. The Finnish have always been able to enjoy life, contrary to popular belief. The comedy play from popular playwright Bengt Ahlfors entitled The Last Cigar tells the story of a retired headmaster, tired of his life and especially his wife. He claims his doctor has diagnosed him with a terminal illness, and under the pretense begins to live a hedonistic and enjoyable life. The play is part of the programme of the 2 Åbo Svenska Teater. On the Linnateatteri stage audiences can revisit the entire history of film, in a way unique to the comical stylings of Linnateatteri. Incorporated into the play are famous movie classics and turning points in Finnish filmmaking. Your capacity for laughter is pushed to the limits as the best-known scenes from Finnish films come together in The Incredible History of Film directed by Kalle Lamberg. 4

HIGH-QUALITY OPERA

Turku is profiled not only as a city of culture and music, but also a producer of high-class opera. The first ever through-composed, Kalevala-inspired opera, Die Kalewainen in Pochjola (The Men of Kalevala in the Northland), receives its world premiere as part of the Finland 100 anniversary – and where better than in Turku. In Logomo can be seen a series of six music performances from Turku Philharmonic Orchestra, led by chief conductor Leif Segerstam.

ARTISTIC TREASURES OF THE GOLDEN AGE

In Turku Art Museum you can explore, among others, the golden age of Finnish art. In addition to the museum’s collection, on display are works from the artists who lived through the transition period to independence. You can admire pieces from names such as 3 Akseli Gallen-Kallela, Hugo Simberg and Helene Schjerfbeck. A SIGNIFICANT FINNISH ARTIST FROM THE TIME OF INDEPENDENCE

The anniversary year in Turku sees a musical about one of Finland’s best-known artists. The premiere of Tom of Finland the Musical is held in Turku City Theatre in January 2017. From Kaarina in the 1950’s Touko Laaksonen came out to the world and presented his homosexual fantasies in such a bold manner that millions of men discovered their own sexual identity through his works. To the general public Tom of Finland created a view of the world that until this point had been forbidden. Become familiar with his art in an exhibition in Turku, already shown in Berlin and Liverpool, which examines the rise of the gay movement and the influence Tom of Fin-

land had on politics, society and culture. Touko Laaksonen – Tom of Finland / Of Music and Men is presented in the Wäinö Aaltonen Museum 13th January-19th March 2017. DANCE AND NATIONAL COLOURS

For the first time the Europeade event comes to Finland, organised in Turku 26th-30th July 2017. Europe’s largest folk music and dance event brings thousands of performers from more than twenty countries. Europeade will be strongly visible on the streets of Turku. Over the four days you can see around 5,000 dancers on the city squares and in central locations. The event also includes a parade, workshops, children’s events, shows, choir concerts and large festivities. THE SPIRIT OF ALL FINLAND

The seaside town of Turku functioned on many occasions as Finland’s lifeline when wars broke out, and so it played an important role in Finland’s independence. Turku was the access point to the west and the Åland Islands, and the city also had a lot of wartime industry. The maritime city’s role remains to this very day. In honour of the anniversary year Turku harbour is one of the host ports for the Tall

ECCLESIASTICAL CAPITAL

Helene Schjerfbeck: Self Portrait, 1915. Turku Art Museum.

October 2017 marks the passing of 500 years since the theologian Martti Luther published his famous theses in Wittenberg and since the start of the Reformation. As the reformation city, Turku was the conduit through which protestant ideas arrived and spread throughout Finland. To this day Turku is still the capital of Finland’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, where events of national significance are organised. During the year Turku welcomes musical works and concerts, visual arts, exhibitions and much more. Turku is recognised as an open and ecumenical city. The important declaration of the Christmas Peace is made from the main church of Finland, Turku Cathedral, to the rest of the country.

Helene Schjerfbeck can be counted as one of Western art’s most important modernists. Her works, along with the works of other major Finnish artists, can be explored at Turku Art Museum.

A PRISON, A STOREHOUSE AND A BARRACKS. NOWADAYS IT IS A MUST-VISIT TOURIST ATTRACTION.

The castle’s halls and chambers have witnessed major turning points and dramatic events in history – from the misfortunes of incarcerated prisoners to royal visitors and the elegance of courtly life. The comprehensive exhibition of Turku Castle presents the castle’s history up to the present day. The elegant rooms of the Bailey are styled with periodic furniture, costumes and treasures of the museum’s collection.

At the Fatabur Museum Shop you’ll find gifts, souvenirs and costumes for your adventurous little knight or princess. Information to feed the imagination can be acquired from the shop’s range of books. In Duke John’s Cellar break from your museum visit with a refreshing cup of coffee or a delicious lunch.

AN IMPRESSIVE TIMELINE & THE MAIN EXHIBITION DETAILING THE CASTLE’S HISTORY

The kingdom’s Reformation began with Gustav Vasa, when matters of faith were intertwined with political power games. Throughout the 1500’s it was unclear whether Sweden would end up a Catholic or Lutheran country. Finland’s Reformation affected people’s daily life and environment in many ways. Featuring almost 200 artefacts, the exhibition tells the story of the transition that occurred between 1500-1600’s. Archaeological findings, religious valuables as well as books and texts describe the cultural change, the progress of which impacted the rulers of the time.

In the Bailey discover the 700-year history of Turku Castle. Follow the timeline, peer through the doors, and marvel at the fabrics and feel the soft velvet and coarse linen. Put together the puzzle of armour and dress a virtual doll in renaissance clothing. The main exhibition focuses on everyday castle life and celebrations, the majesty of court and servant life. A highlight are the life-size wax dolls, which include wax works of Duke John and Catherine Jagiellon, the prominent 16th Century Turku merchant Valpuri Innamaata and the castle’s sausage maker Pylsy-Elinaa. The Children’s Castle Knight’s Hall lets kids dress as a princess or a knight and step into the world of a medieval court. In addition the Children’s Castle are the Castle Workshop, the Mini-court and the Castle-Elf ’s treasure chamber. Organised for kids in the castle are the fun and exciting Little Knight’s Tours. 2

Turku Cathedral, located on Unikankare Mound, is Finland’s National Shrine. It was consecrated as the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Finland’s first bishop St Henry in 1300. Turku Cathedral is regarded as Finland’s most valuable historical monument building. The National Shrine’s magnificent details serve as a record of Finnish history. Laid to rest under the cathedral’s arches are bishops, military commanders and even a queen – Queen Kaarina Maununtytär.

THE SIBELIUS MUSEUM

”Ett Hem” was the private home of consul Alfred Jacobsson and his wife Hélène, preserved for posterity as a ‘Home museum’ to illustrate what life was like at the turn of the 20th Century. Alfred and Hélène Jacobsson donated their home and all their personal belongings to the Åbo Akademi Foundation in 1925. The museum, in it’s current building, opened to the public in 1965. The decór of art from artists such as Edelfelt, Westerholm and Gallen-Kallela as well as the period furniture, porcelain and glass, combine to create the museum’s distinctive milieu. ETT HEM

HELENE SCHJERFBECK UNTIL 29 JAN

Helene Schjerfbeck (1862–1946) is one of the most prominent modernist artists, whose early realist works gradually gave way to more refined expression. Schjerfbeck’s forte was human portraiture, and besides portraying people near her, she created ravishing and deeply compelling self-portraits. During her long career Schjerfbeck also created grand historical themes and still lifes depicting the inevitable passing of time. ELINA BROTHERUS 17 FEB–21 MAY

One of Finland’s internationally most successful photographic artists, Elina Brotherus’ exhibition brings together for the first time works from the entire duration of her career. Well-known for her sensitive and intimate self-portraits, Brotherus ponders imagery of the movements of the mind, being the object in view and the relationship of the human figure with the landscape.

Tyko Sallinen (1879–1955) was a famous forerunner of Finnish modernism and expressionism. During 1910’s his brushstokes became particularly expressive at the same time when he also caused the first controversies in Finnish modernism with his works Pyykkärit (‘Washerwomen’) and Hihhulit (‘Fanatics’). The vivacious celebration of colour later changed to more broken, earthy tones but the form remained strong, particularly in his depiction of people.

THE NEWEST ISLAND OF TURKU’S ARCHIPELAGO

The birth of new islands and islets forming Turku’s Archipelago are the result of rising land, but not in this case. Örö Island in the south of the Archipelago Sea rose from the water sometime after the last Ice Age, to be later colonised by farmers and fishermen. However, in the 1910’s Örö was closed to civilians for over 100 years. During this time Örö was used for military purposes. The army withdrew from Örö a few years ago, and the island was opened up for tourism in the summer of 2015. The public troops quickly found their way to the island: already in 2015 Örö had received 24,000 visitors. Passage from Turku to Örö can be made aboard M/S Kökar, with the duration of the journey around 4 hours. If a shorter travel time is preferred it is possible to drive to Kasnäs on Kimito (less than 1.5 hours from Turku) and then aboard M/S Ejskäri the rest of the way. The boat journey from Kasnäs–Örö is just over an hour, with coffee available alongside views of the archipelago vistas. If you come to Örö with your own boat, there are 70 slip spaces at Örö’s guest marina. Two restaurants, cooking food from local ingredients, operate on the island: the Rantakahvila at the edge of the harbour as well as Restaurant 12” in the old army barracks. Also opened in the old barracks in summer 2016 was Hotel Örö, whose remodelled rooms accommodate approximately 40 guests. It was


ARCHIPELAGO SAUNAS An authentic way to experience the Archipelago is to go there for a sauna. You’ll usually find saunas at the guest marinas, but some other alternatives include: RUUKINSAUNA (Dalsbruk) Once operating as the sauna for the officials of the former Dalsbruk ironworks, the sauna has been tastefully renovated. The sauna serves tourists and boaters during summer but is available to hire throughout the year. www.ruukinsauna.fi

already possible to stay overnight on the island in a variety of renovated garrison buildings, such as the Käärmemurju or Impilinna cottages. A BLEND OF NATURE AND HISTORY

The popular new Örö Island is a diverse, even unusual combination of history and nature. Both can and should be explored during summer on the organised guided tours, where a decent walk of a few kilometres loops around the island’s main sites. Archipelago nature is naturally part of the island environment, but on Örö visitors can also spot genuine rarities both in terms of flora and fauna. Occasional visitors should pay attention to the heather blooming in lilac at the end of the summer, not commonly seen across Finland. The special vegetation is a result of Örö’s scorched heathlands and calcareous soil. In the same soils, under the island sun, thrive a rich variety of butterfly. In addition, on Örö you are also likely to see species not found anywhere else in Finland. For example the Pasque flower grows only in Finland on Örö and blooms in May. One individual flower at the edge of the heathland is fenced off so that visitors don’t walk over it. Anyone trying to dig up the pasque flower to take home to their garden should be warned, hidden near the flowers are cameras ready to catch you in the act! Örö’s rare plants also include sea kale, which grows on the sandy beach of the long,

windy northern shore. Reportedly seen here is something even more rare to Finland – suffers! The open sea spreads out in front of the sandy beach, which gives good waves for boarders during suitably rough weather. Food can be made of the large leafed sea kale, but on Örö it is a protected species. BIG BANG

An important part of Örö’s special quality is its role in the balance of Europe’s military history in the early 20th Century, when Finland was a Grand Duchy of Russia. Russia felt the need to strengthen its defenses in the event that Germany might attack St Petersburg through the Gulf of Fin-

land. Thus in the Gulf of Finland was built, by the standards of the time, what was considered the world’s largest coastal fortress. Örö was fortified as part of a larger entity that included units on various islands in the Gulf of Finland. Coastal artillery training was conducted on Örö from 1921 until 2014, seen through the old barracks and maintenance buildings. The island’s speciality and significance to the history of artillery are the 12-inch Obukhovskii guns, which you can get to know in detail on Örö’s guided tour. Get a real impression from visiting the rock created as the turret from where the heavy-duty guns were fired over 40 km. When these 12-inch canons were fired, the whole island shook.

not completely destroyed then the glass was shattered. Also the hearing of the troops was doomed as well. Although firing them was dramatic, the old canons were not very effective. “Compared with the high accuracy of modern warfare technology, hitting anything with the traditional canons was difficult, but fortunately there were large warships to aim at. Although these guns participated in battles such as Bengtskär, their role militarily was primarily defensive,” explains Örö guide OlliJaakko Latva-Mäenpää. The guided tours of Örö depart daily during summer from the island’s old supply depot, from where you can also sign up for the tour. For further information go to: visitörö.fi •

The routes pass through atmospheric villages, bustling harbours and majestic beaches. What does a real fisherman’s croft look like? What’s it like to stay in a lighthouse at the centre of a lively sea? What’s life like on the wooden piers and in the middle of the red boathouses? How does the fresh sea breeze feel at the edge of a 500m-long bridge? All of these experiences

Travelling to Åland is easier than you think. The islands are well served by daily connections from Turku and Naantali. The fastest way is from Turku by Viking Line and Tallink Silja passenger ferries. The voyage takes about five hours. Archipelago ferries are also a great choice, particularly for those wishing to explore the Archipelago between Åland and the mainland. Boats depart from Vuosnainen in Kustavi and Galtby in Korppoo. The journey can also be easily done by bike. Island hopping is easy in summertime with the bike-ferry. Åland’s main island is 45km by 50km and it is also possible to buy various bicycle packages, the prices of which include boat trip, bike, bike-basket, helmet, overnight stay and breakfast. The routes and the maps can be viewed at: www. visitaland.com You can also arrive by your own boat or even by plane! The visitors’ marinas are located near sights, activities and restaurants in the villages and residential areas. The quickest way to the islands is by air. From Turku’s airport to Mariehamn takes only half an hour.

ONLY AN HOURS DRIVE FROM TURKU IS FINLAND’S ONLY CITY TO BOAST TWO UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITES.

UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites of Old Rauma and the Sammallahdenmäki Bronze Age Burial Site are both very different and fascinating places to visit. Old Rauma represents an extensive wooden city area, where the oldest houses date back as far as the 1700’s. Old Rauma is a vivid city area, where commerce, culture and life operate in perfect harmony. Cafés, restaurants and boutiques are in abundance. Museums, beautiful courtyards, the market as well as the Church of the Holy Cross all complement the living idyll. The Rauma area has been

inhabited for around 3,000 years, a fact evidenced by the cobbled stone rocks that built the Bronze Age burial site. The Sammallahdenmäki cemetery consists of 36 graves of different shapes and sizes, located about a kilometre away across rocky ridges and beautiful moorland. COLOURFUL MARITIME HISTORY

Shipping has brought international influences over the centuries. The sea has always brought city life, trade and influence from even the remotest of countries. Rauma’s three tourist islands, Kylmäpihlaja Lighthouse Island, Kuuskajaskari Fortress Island and Reksaari Nature Island are all located close to the city. The archipelago of Rauma offers unforget-

table experiences for the lovers of the sea. UNIQUE CULTURE

Culture in Rauma comes from its highly skilled artisans. Rauma’s reputation as the city of lace dates back to the 1500’s. Artists from various fields have found Rauma a creative place for their workshops and studios.

For all the little fish out there Turku offers lots of ways to get wet. There's plenty of water games in the watering holes of Turku - indoors and outdoors - and dozens of places to swim, both in the city and the surrounding areas. Closest to the city centre are the beaches of Ispoinen, Ekvalla, Saaronniemi, Brinkhall and Maaria. In addition you can also find public beaches on the recreational islands of Maisaari, Pähkinäinen and Vepsä as well as in Kalikka on lake Pyhäjärvi. There are also plenty of places to swim in the centre of Turku. The two popular outdoor pools of Samppalinna hill and Kupittaa Park, both of which are heated, are great for any size of water creature. Both are surrounded by space to picnic and relax in the sun, and even include diving towers and a couple of waterslides. For a really memorable wet and wild experience head to the water park JukuPark, located only 3 km from the city centre. Inflatable castles, giant water balls as well as fast and fantastic waterslides on inflatable rings, ensure supremely soaked excitement for the whole day. In the event of bad weather or high winds there are a variety of indoor facilities as well. At

Impivaara Swimming Hall you’ll find a selection of small and large pools for both exercise and recreational use. The swimming hall offers organised playtime for kids, with water toys made available for them to play with. The hall has a 50 m pool as well as driving tower, and in the same building there is also a gym. To make your splash a more exotic experience then look no further than Spa Hotel Caribia.

A ticket to Moominworld includes two different plays at Theatre Emma. Shows are on the hour every hour throughout the day, so you might have time to see your favourite story twice. The first show is a musical – great fun whatever language you speak. In the other show the language is Finnish or Swedish, but with subtitles you can also follow the play in English or in Russian. MOOMINWORLD TRAILS

Along the nature trail see Moominpappa’s boat, Snufkin’s camp, Snork’s workshop and the Fairytale Forest. Lie down on the park’s beanbags and hammocks and take a rest from play whilst listening to some of the stories. From the lookout point you can see the Finnish President’s summerhouse of Kultaranta. Along the Fairytale Trail follow the story of Thingumy and Bob. The trail also leads to the homes of the Witch, the Groke and the Hattifatteners.

PAAVO NURMI FESTIVAL

Paavo Nurmi is alongside Usain Bolt and Carl Lewis as one of the only athletes in the world to have won 9 gold medals. The legacy of Turku’s son is given due respect with Finland’s largest sports event, the Paavo Nurmi Festival, held in the city every summer, the highlight being the athletics competition the Paavo Nurmi Games. In 2017 the Paavo Nurmi Games becomes an affiliated part of the international IAAF World Challenge league and thus Turku automatically joins the global athletics circuit. During the season, top athletes from around the world compete in 14 competitions, taking in such cities as Beijing, Berlin, Madrid, Melbourne – and now also Turku.

The Paavo Nurmi Games brings to Turku hundreds of competitors and a full grandstand audience. In the 2017 competition you will be able to see finalists and medal winners from the Rio 2016 Olympics, for example. Despite the global stars on show the attention of the Finnish public is naturally fixed on the Finnish stars’ efforts to contest the world’s finest. Organised as part of the Paavo Nurmi Festival are the Paavo Nurmi Junior & Master Games, bringing many promising young athletes to the field – double the number participating in the main event. Also competing are athletes - ages 35-100 - participating in the Master’s series.The juniors and the masters compete on the same site as the professionals, so the atmosphere of a major sporting event is guaranteed.

Paavo Nurmi Festival is one of Turku’s great sporting celebrations. Sports fans are indulged with Finland’s top-level athletics event as well as the most beautiful marathon course in Finland.

The whole city wins as the Paavo Nurmi Festival gets a fitting conclusion, when 4,000 runners from around the world follow in the footsteps of the legend. One of Finland’s largest marathon events reaches 25-years as it powers through the centre of Turku and the beautiful nature of Ruissalo Island on 1st July. The goal of the Paavo Nurmi Marathon is to reach the bronze level of the International Association of Athletics (IAAF). This means higher participation of international contestants and a tougher standard for the top runners. Alongside the world’s elite on the starting line are thousands looking to complete the 10 km, half-marathon and marathon distances.

CHALLENGE TURKU 12-13 AUGUST

Turku was chosen by triathlon’s international Challenge organization as a competition venue particularly because the event is exceptional in being hosted at the heart of the city. For example the swimming stage slices through the centre down the River Aura. The urban environment brings its own flavour for both the competition and the spectators. Challenge Turku is a triathlon event that, in addition to competing athletes, also has enthusiastic amateurs challenging themselves. Similar competitions are held throughout the year with 44 events in 21 countries. Of the Nordic region Challenge-races, in addition to Turku, there are the Billund-Herning and Fredericia races in Denmark, the Tønsberg race in Norway and another race in Iceland. The busy Challenge Turku triathlon weekend brings to Turku in August about a thousand participants and thousands more spectators.

PAAVO NURMI FESTIVAL CALENDAR FIGHTBACK RUN

SATURDAY 10 JUNE 2017 44

The survival story of Turku’s own Pekka Hyysalo is familiar across Finland. A promising freestyle skier, his career was cut short by an accident and resulting head injury. In 2013 Hyysalo founded the FightBack movement to help others coping with serious head traumas. The movement raises money and promotes positive thinking in those fighting back from the adversity they are facing. FightBack Run is a sports event open to all, with proceeds going to support the activities of the FightBack association. In September 2017 the feel-good celebration is held for the fourth time and, as with past events, Pekka Hyysalo will double last year’s distance of 10.4 km. Participants can choose a suitable distance between 2.6 and 21.8 km. In addition the event has a 260 metre unobstructed section so all can participate, whatever their condition.

TALL SHIPS RACE IN TURKU 20-23 JULY

In summer 2017 Turku will operate as one of the host ports for the Tall Ships Races. Receiving the honour for the fifth time makes Turku the most experienced Tall Ships Race coordinator in the Baltic Sea. Once again are expected about half a million visitors from around Finland and Europe. The Tall Ships Race comes to Turku for the fifth time, and the city couldn’t be more suited for such a maritime event. The event’s elegant urban atmosphere is much due thanks to the River Aura flowing through Turku: the tall ships can be brought up the river practically in the city centre. Each more handsome than the next, the sailing ships are moored to a small area on both sides of the River Aura, and the public can examine the ships close up, with some even offering accessible parts on board. The cabins and decks of the ships echo with music, and the marina throngs with the crew and staff of the sailing ships.

Tom of Finland in Turku Known for being a pioneer for gay culture, Touko Laaksonen is a fascinating part of Finnish cultural history. From Kaarina the artist came out to the world and his legacy is shown in Turku in 2017 in many ways. In addition to Turku City Theatre’s Tom of Finland the Musical there is an exhibition of Touko Laaksonen’s life and life’s work. Touko Laaksonen – Tom of Finland – From Music to Men is presented in the Wäinö Aaltonen Museum 13 January – 19 March 2017. In Logomo can be seen the making of Dome Karukoski’s new movie, displaying the sets and background for Behind the Scenes: Tom of Finland. The exhibition has no age limit and opens in February 2017. 86

Have you ever come across sports such as jousting, skill at arms, melee and the long sword? Don’t worry, not many people have! Perhaps this is your chance to see them at the Turku Castle Tournament, held in July, and where else better than the cradle of Finnish history and the historically rich setting of Turku Castle. A medley of impressive martial combat is presented throughout the whole competition weekend as the Finnish championships are contested. Turku Castle is at its best as it compliments the tournament with markets and themed tours. In addition there are also lectures, which initiate spectators on knightly culture, chivalry and combats of the world. •

TURKU OFFERS FINLAND’S GREATEST DELICACIES, FROM BREAKFAST BRUNCHES AND SET MENUS TO COMPREHENSIVE EVENING DINING – AND NOT FORGETTING LATE NIGHT SNACKS. THE MAJORITY OF THE RESTAURANTS ARE LOCATED IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF EACH OTHER.

BREAKFAST GETS THE DAY GOING

The day begins best with a hearty breakfast. Several downtown cafés open their doors as early as eight o’clock, some even earlier. The lively morning milieu and refreshing coffee can be enjoyed in the Market Hall’s Blue Train café or in Fazer Cafe on the edge of the market square. The latest gossip and interesting stories are heard at the Tori Café located on the central Market Square. If you've heard Turku locals don’t talk to strangers, the resident ‘Åboriginals’ at the Tori Café will quickly dispel the myth! What’s more, you’re sure to get a taste of the real Turku dialect. A more robust breakfast, with oat-porridge and freshly baked rolls from the onsite bakery, are served near to the bus station at Café Helmi. Also included are croissants, Karelian pasties, boiled eggs, sausages and fruit. LUNCHTIME TURKU

At lunchtime Turku comes close to paradise. There is a wide selection of different places and the choices available range from vegetarian sushi to home-cooked street food. Lunch-

es are traditionally served between 11am2.30pm. Lunch offers are found in nearly every restaurant along with a choice of either individual dishes or the buffet, such as the centrally located Fontana, the idyllic Hus Lindman and restaurant Tårget located at the edge of Vähätori Square. If you can't find what you really fancy for lunch, head toward the Market Hall. In and around the hall are about a dozen or so restaurants to choose from. A whole group can enjoy varied cuisine at the same time, from a choice of Vietnamese, Japanese or Finnish cuisine, to name a few. Vegetarian options are available almost everywhere, but the specialist Roots Kitchen is in a class of its own. Here, even the most gourmet vegans will be satisfied. Be sure to check out in the same category the new restaurant Kuori on Hämeenkatu. If you're in the mood for natural healthy food, it’s worth heading to Pure Hero on Eerikinkatu. Cheerfully decorated, at the lunch café you’ll meet health food enthusiasts, athletic types and the vanguard of urban culture. One tip: taste the raw cake! 105

MENUS & À LA CARTE

In recent years Turku’s restaurants have taken on international recognition. Many places offer à la carte in addition to an interesting menu of flavours. When heading down to the most popular restaurants it pays to think ahead. Some places are booked months in advance. Turku’s restaurant Kaskis made history last year by being the first Michelin star restaurant outside of Helsinki. Located on Kaskenmäki hill the restaurant received the Michelin label in the spring of 2016. Kaskis’ style is in the spirit of fine dining, with an informal touch, and food always prepared using local ingredients. The bustling kitchen is run by the TV star, chef Erik Mansikka. In spring 2017 Kaskis opens a pop-up restaurant in the former prison of Kakolanmäki.

Turku’s restaurant scene is always bubbling! Make sure to stroll along the River Aura where there are a many restaurants, cafés and bars brimming with individuality. - HELI NIEMINEN, TURKU FOOD CULTURE AMBASSADOR -

23 VAAKAHUONE PAVILION

Restaurant Uusi Apteekki is a charming café bar where the genuine ambience of an old pharmacy combines with the diverse range of beer, cider and selection of malt whiskies. Here you will rub shoulders with detective Jussi Vares – or at least you would do, if he weren’t the fictional character of Reijo Mäki’s crime thrillers. Maybe instead of Vares you’ll bump into the writer himself. Either way, the cultural legend’s local pub is open everyday of the year .

Restaurant and entertainment venue on the shores of the River Aura! Vaakahuone Pavilion is often chosen as the most popular restaurant in Turku. Live music (latin, swing, Dixiland jazz) and dancing every evening throughout summer. Enjoy the archipelago buffet and much more besides, from pizza to the salad bar, wine bar, ice-cream terrace and kids buffet.

Throughout its entire 800-year history Turku has witnessed celebrations, encounters, gatherings and made pivotal agreements and resolutions. The whole city is one of the most interesting event exhibition areas in the Baltic Sea region. Thanks to its geographical location Turku has always been easy to reach by boat, car or plane. With an exotic archipelago unequalled throughout the world on the city’s doorstep, the venues for special occasions are exceptional! The major advantages for Turku are the short distances and a compact city centre. Thousands of delegates to scientific congresses and conventions visit the area every year. The myriad facilities and services located in a small area allow even large international congresses to make ecologically preferable choices, for example, and still keep logistics manageable. Logomo, the

centre for culture, art and the creative economy, continues to gain in popularity. The new facilities of Turku City Theatre open along the shores of the River Aura in summer 2017, more fantastic than ever before, whilst Radisson Blu Marina Palace offers the entire package in the city centre at the heart of the River Aura scenery. The following pages will provide tips on the many places that can make yours the perfect event. More information on the best venues for conferences and celebrations is found at: meetturku.fi. For services to help design large events and international congresses, contact: convention@turku.fi. Get guidance, advice and tips from Visit Turku sales service: sales@visitturku.fi.
