2 Begin the walking tour at 1 Turku Cathedral. Stand on the steps of the church and gaze down river, you’ll see the final stop of the tour 2 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 is given from the balcony. Looking up from Brinkkala’s balcony, on the hill is the Vartiovuori Observatory. Adjacent is Luostarin­mäki Handicrafts Museum offering a great setting for traditional handicraft demonstrations during summer. Descend from the old square to the river and you’ll see Turku’s oldest restaurant Pinella. The view in front is of 3 Vähä­­­tori Square, flanked by restaurants, with the old and new coming together nicely at the library quarter. Located between Vä-

3 hätori and the Aura Bridge are many good restaurants including 4 Gustavo, Tiirikkala, Mami and Smör as well as wine bars E. Ekblom and Tintå. On the riverside at Vähätori is Låna, hiring electric picnic boats to cruise up the river during summer. From Pinella, continue along Itäinen Rantakatu Street. On the left you’ll come to the Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova museum. 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 5 Library Bridge, for pedestrians and bicycles, with modern light architecture that helps to accentuate the national landscape environment.

7 Further down the eastern shore at the foot of the Aura Bridge is the Paavo Nurmi statue, a duplicate of the one in Helsinki. Here, located on Kaskenmäki hill, you are very close to the New Pharmacy pub, a 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. Remember to book a table in 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. From the bridge continue to the left along Läntinen Rantakatu Street. Anchored on the opposite shore you’ll see a speciality of Turku’s restaurant culture, namely the riverboats. There are around a dozen riverboat restaurants, full to the brim on a warm summer’s evening. Continuing along the western shore the next site is the 6 Pharmacy Museum, housed in Qwensel House built in the 1700’s. When walking across the Theatre Bridge, at the other end is the Turku City Theatre. 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 eastern shore you’ll see the 7 Wäinö Aaltonen Museum. 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. 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 Föri has linked the riversides for more than a hundred years. Jump aboard – it’s free! Turn your back to Föri and the river to see 9 Kakolanmäki hill, where a stone fortress at the top was the prison for the most notorio-

Next to Föri on the western shore is the Turku Guest Marina, from where you can spot restaurant 10 NOOA’s huge roof terrace. The next stop is 11 Varvintori square. The former rope factory, renovated for use by the Turku Conservatory and Arts Academy. Micha Ullman’s North is a part of the Turku city sculpture project, as are a series of 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. However, before the castle you’ll pass the sailing ships the Sigyn barque, the Suomen Joutsen and other museum ships of the Maritime Centre 12 Forum Marinum. In the centre of the courtyard grows possibly the largest daisy in the whole of Finland. The 25-metre long sculpture is the creation of Jani Rättyä and Antti Stöckell. Anchored next to the museum ships is hostel-boat S/S Bore. It has a wonderful history as a cruise ship from the 1960’s and an atmospheric interior of brass and mahogany. •

HISTORY & ART

TURKU IS FINLAND’S OLDEST CITY, WHOSE STORY BEGAN AS EARLY AS THE 1200’S. WE HAVE HONOURED THE CITY’S LONG HISTORY BY HIGHLIGHTING NINE DESTINATIONS TO MARK EVERY CENTURY OF TURKU’S EXISTENCE. LOOK FOR THE SITES - LEARN BY EXPERIENCING! 1200’S: THE KOROINEN CROSS

On the opposite side of the River Aura from Turku University is the Koroinen Cross. The cross marks the site where the Pope in Rome decreed the remote bishopric of Finland move to in 1229. An excellent fitness trail meets up with the Koroinen Cross from the city, highly recommneded to active visitors. In addition to the cross, the site also has info boards detailing the history of the ruins of the bishop’s palace. 1300’S: TURKU CATHEDRAL

Turku Cathedral was consecrated as early as 1300, 71 years after the bishop’s seat moved to Koroinen. So what was wrong with Koroinen? “Well, I couldn’t say for sure. At the time the site of the Cathedral was just better,” explains Turku University’s Associate Professor of Cultural 10

History Rauno Lahtinen, continuing: “Closer to the mouth of the Aura meant bigger merchant ships could sail, even then life in Turku wasn’t all about the church.” Not much is left of the Cathedral from the 1300’s, so much has changed during its history. The Cathedral Museum does however hold artefacts from medieval times. P. 18. 1400’S: ABOA VETUS & ARS NOVA

In Turku there is a museum where visitors can stroll through the city’s medieval ruins, which are exhibited in the Aboa Vetus museum. Aboa Vetus is located in central Turku, in the old Rettig Palace, and is connected to the museum of contemporary art, Ars Nova. The main exhibition of Aboa Vetus presents medieval Turku and everything fascinating about the 1400’s! P. 16–17.

Turku Cathedral, the national shrine of Finland, was consecrated in 1300’s.

Look for the sites – learn by experiencing! In the Aboa Vetus museum you can see the ruins of medieval Turku.

1500’S: TURKU CASTLE

1600’S: THE ROYAL ACADEMY OF TURKU

Construction of Turku Castle began in the 1200’s, but was at its peak during the renaissance splendour of the 16th Century. At that time Finland was part of Sweden and Turku was the main city, from where the King of Sweden administered through his son Duke John. John’s Polish wife was Catherine Jagiellon, who brought to Turku a lavish court and new luxuries. Among other things, these included Finland’s first forks and ladies in waiting. During the time of Duke John the castle was greatly extended, including the renaissance floor with its banquet halls. The King’s Hall and the Queen’s Hall are still available for dining events, but not with their renaissance decor. P. 14–15.

In 1640 the Governor General Pehr Brahe founded the Royal Academy of Turku, beginning university education in Finland. Nothing remains of the original Academy except a cobblestone street that runs between Turku Cathedral and the Academy house, marking the site. The landmark is part of a multi-site urban artwork entitled Shadow of Knowledge – look out for it when visiting. At the same time spot the statue of Pehr Brahe in the grounds of the Cathedral. Engraved at the base of the statue of the Governor General is his famous phrase that defined his time in Finland: “The country was pleased with me, and I was pleased with the country.”

Turku Castle is a landmark, museum and events venue. Held in the grounds every summer is the medieval tournament. P. 14–15.

Qwensel House

Hirvensalo Art Chapel


1700’S: QWENSEL HOUSE

A hundred years ago the Aura riverside was allocated for large dwellings, to be built by the city’s wealthiest merchants and bourgeoisie. One of these individuals was the justice for the Court of Appeals, W. J. Qwensel. His large bourgeois home from the 1700’s still stands on the same site. The Pharmacy Museum is also located at Qwensel House. P. 21. The 1800’s is still so fresh that half of Turku could be used to represent the period. However, if one site needs to be chosen then there is no better than the Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum. A place almost frozen in time, there you can see a neighbourhood of Turku before the Great Fire of 1827. P. 20. 1900’S: PAAVO NURMI’S TURKU

Paavo Nurmi was Turku Athletics Association’s own running star, whose dominance during the 1920’s can be compared to that of Usain Bolt in this millennium. As proof of this he won nine Olympic gold and three silver medals - a record that remains unbeaten! The legend of Paavo Nurmi is immortalised in the statue by Wäinö Aaltonen at the eastern end of the Aura bridge in central Turku. Once a year you can also visit Nurmi’s home on Jarrumiehenkatu Street. It’s open on Nurmi’s birthday 13 June – or when privately agreed via Visit Turku’s groups sales.

2000’S: THE HIRVENSALO ART CHAPEL

Associate Professor of Cultural History,

The 2000’s in Turku was marked by the flourishing of urban culture. The riverside is evermore beautiful, with investment in architecture and the growing reputation of Turku’s brilliant restaurant culture. However, for the 21st Centuary we chose the impressive piece of architecture, located outside the city, on Hirvensalo Island. When the Hirvensalo Art Chapel Ikhthys (Fish) was completed (2005) it immediately became a compulsory destination for architecture enthusiasts. The exterior of the masterpiece, resembling the scales of a fish or an upturned boat, cultivates imaginative references to the history of Christianity. The perfectly built structure is created from the visionary designs of architect Matti Sanaksenaho.

Restaurant Kerttu Having always been a fan of Turku, ever since childhood, I left Kokemäenjoki to come to the city to study. The River Aura is a big part of what makes Turku such a natural, verdant city. There are many beautiful buildings, such as the city library, where I often spend my leisure time. Naturally there’s plenty to read but the architecture is also fantastic. 13

THE ATMOSPHERIC ROOMS OF THE MEDIEVAL CASTLE, THE RENAISSANCE SPLENDOUR AND THE WONDERFUL ARCHITECTURE, WILL ASTONISH ALL WHO VISIT.

During its history the castle has been defended and besieged, frequently changing hands between medieval leaders. In the time of Duke John, court life at the castle was transformed, with the introduction of the latest clothing fashions and the enjoyment of sumptuous dining. In later periods the castle would also be used as a barracks, a warehouse and a prison.

The bailey’s timeline lets you explore the exciting changes to the castle. Peer into the chambers, get fitted with armour and dress a virtual paper doll in renaissance clothing. The main exhibition in the round tower brings into focus daily life and festivities, the royal court and servants. Highlights include the life-size wax dolls. The dungeons reveal what prisons were like before the building of Kakola. Rooms of the bailey are stylised with furnishings and costumes, and the Money and Medallion Cabinet displays treasures of the museum collection.

At the Fatabur Museum Shop you’ll find gifts, souvenirs and costumes for your adventurous little knight or princess. In Duke John’s cellar you can enjoy a tasty lunch during your visit.

TURKU CATHEDRAL 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 Cathedral Museum takes you back through history to the Catholicism of the Middle Ages. The museum consists of, among other things, statues of saints and church silver from medieval times.

Rut Bryk (1916–1999) was a Finnish reformer of modern ceramic art, whose early, small-scale works were colourful narratives, followed by simplified yet, sometimes, monumental entities that grow and take over the space. Bryk never abandoned her figurative style but many of the more detailed works may appear abstract.

ADMISSION €10/9/6, free for under 16yrs Café Victor and the Museum Shop Muusa are open during museum opening hours. Entry is free to the cafe and shop.

Dick Bengtsson (1936–1989) is known as one of Sweden’s most prominent artists. The self-taught artist brought together a range of techniques in his works and encompassed idiosyncratic methods in his paintings. Bengtsson never gave his personal explanation of the often-surprising details and juxtapositions in his works, but to which the artist nevertheless appears to allude, laying bare the façade of the idyllic Folkhemmet. ALI MUNSTERHJELM – AXEL HAARTMAN – SANTERI SALOKIVI 14 SEP 2018–20 JAN 2019

Ali Munsterhjelm, Axel Haartman and Santeri Salokivi were not just fellow artists, but also leading figures of impressionism and post-impressionism based colour painting in Turku in the early 1900’s. In accordance with their Parisian teachings, the artists would capture the surroundings without forgetting the social aspects of reality. Munsterhjelm specialised in landscapes and urban art, particularly perspectives of the River Aura, while Haartman focused on still lifes, interiors, human portraiture and landscapes. Of the trio, Salokivi’s favourites were portraits, as well as city landscapes.

Also featured are brightly coloured synthetic leather artworks, originating in the 1970’s pop period.

HERTTA KIISKI AND JENNA SUTELA, 8 JUNE–16 SEP

Hertta Kiiski works with photography, moving images, objects, space – and often with her own daughters. Her works discuss empathy and relationships between people, non-humans and space. Sutela’s tools include words, sounds and other living materials. Her pieces often deal with the relationship between people, other entities and technology. CIVIL WAR, 5 OCT 2018–13 JAN 2019

2018 will mark 100 years since the Finnish Civil War. The exhibition handles the horrors of civil war and the traces left in art. What does war mean as a historical phenomenon and how does it affect people on a personal level? Cafe Wäinö offers a great way to conclude your art experience.

ARCHIPELAGO & SURROUNDINGS TURKU’S ARCHIPELAGO IS CREATED FROM AROUND 40,000 ISLANDS AND ISLETS. THE NUMBER OF ISLANDS IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE, BUT DON’T BE BEWILDERED BY THE SCALE. YOU CAN CONQUER THE ARCHIPELAGO ONE ISLAND AT A TIME. START IN TURKU AND LEAVE FOR A DAY TRIP TO RUISSALO! LIVE LIKE A LOCAL

How would you enjoy a beautiful summer’s day if you were to spend it like a Turku local? Go to a market cafe? Dive in the Samppalinna lido? Walk through the heart of Turku along the River Aura? All brilliant ideas, but the best way to spend a beautiful summer’s day is with a visit to Ruissalo. The island is so big that you never

have to worry about others having the same idea. The idyllic island is 23 square kilometres. Ruissalo is located just at the edge of Turku, accessible by bridge with a car or by bus (the No.8 from the Market Square). However, the most fun way is to go by bicycle, which visitors can rent in the city from Visit Turku.

Tourist Information bike hire.

A beautiful summer’s day is best spent with a trip to Ruissalo.

Next to the National Park are charming villas and bathing huts.

Villa Saaro is a summer café . 31


At the tip of Ruissalo is the large Saaronniemi recreational area. Picnic in Saaronniemi. Ready-made baskets from Visit Turku!

From Visit Turku you can also buy readymade picnic packages for two. The package includes bike rental as well as picnic basket, with everything you need for a picnic, and you can choose from two meal alternatives. One option is a barbecue package, and the other has lovely sandwiches, fruit or pastries and coffee. Your personal picnic, with or without bike hire, can be reserved by contacting info@visitturku.fi. Bookings must be made no later than a day before, so that the picnic is waiting for you at café Villa Saaro, which is located at the camping area in Saaronniemi. The picnics include coffee from the café that you can take with you.

THE BOUNTIFUL RUISSALO

Ruissalo is a large island with many surprising attractions. From Turku centre to the bridge to Ruissalo is 5 km and then a further 13 km to the outermost tip at Saaronniemi. The entire journey is ideal for enjoying the wonderful nature, which is particularly rich and verdant here in the inner archipelago. Soon after arriving to Ruissalo the bike path passes a place you won’t want to miss. If hunger already starts to weigh heavy, there’s a pleasant surprise at the rugged and romantic old shipyard. Sergio’s al Maresta offers authentic Italian stone-baked pizza. In summer 2017

Ruissalo’s Kuuvannokka, regarded as the most romantic spot in Turku. 32


Ruissalo’s shipyard was connected to Turku centre by public ferry. The route was an immediate hit. At the point of writing, plans for summer 2018 have not yet been confirmed, but fingers crossed that the Föli ferry will ride again! But hey, there’s more that still awaits. The extensive Ruissalo holds many sites for exploration such as Ruissalo’s national park, which doubles as the venue for the Ruisrock festival. With the exception of the festival weekend, the park is a laid-back oasis that includes a swimming beach and café. Moving further along the promenade, you’ll encounter a cluster of lace villas dating from the turn of the 1900’s. Considered as national treasures, the villas are also homes and summer cottages for Ruissalo’s residents. Luckily, there are other villas on the island available to rent, for parties for example. On Ruissalo, it’s worth exploring the Botanical Garden of the University of Turku, where the Ruissalo Nature Centre and nature school operate. Near to the botanical garden is the Honkapirtti café, serving its fantastic doughnuts and famous pea soup. At the far end of Ruissalo is the camping area of Saaronniemi. This large recreational area beloved by Turku residents, others high-quality facilities that include playgrounds, sauna and changing rooms, barbecue places and picnic benches. The beach at Saaronniemi is the most popular in Turku. If you’ve come for a picnic trip, you can now pick up a picnic basket, pre-booked with Visit Turku, from the campsite’s Villa Saaro café.

A popular bike route

From island to island, ferry to ferry. Bridges, both tall and short, with beautiful scenery. A trail that offers unparalleled perspectives of the archipelago. 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 are found along the trail. Stop in at the café of the 18th Century boater’s croft or climb the tower and see all the way to the Åland Islands. Enjoy Archipelago delights in the milieu of a waterfront terrace or sit on a rock in the warmth watching the setting sun on the horizon. The trail passes through Pargas, Nagu, Korpo, Houtskär, Iniö, Kustavi, Taivassalo, Askainen, Merimasku

COLOURFUL MARITIME HISTORY

Shipping has brought international influences over the centuries. The sea has always brought the 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 unforgetta-

ble experiences for those with a close affinity to 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.

SERVICES

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.

1. FLOWPARK

2. KUPITTAA PARK AND ADVENTURE PARK

Over the past decades, Finland has been sprouting theme parks like mushrooms after a rainy day. Flowpark is a distinctly delightful and new type of theme park, which began in Turku before going on to conquer the rest of Finland. It is a physical activity park, where visitors use their own engines to create their amusement. Turku's Flowpark operates in a small pine grove beside the Skanssi shopping centre. The theme park is a jungle of adventure trails built high up in the trees, which you climb using a safety harness and helmet. Entrance is approximately 25 euros and includes all necessary equipment and guidance for its use. The adventure trails, which range from easy to challenging, are not just for kids! This popular high is sure to get the adrenaline and excitment pumping. For the little Tarzans, there's a kid's trail a bit closer to ground. www.flowpark.fi

Kupittaa Park is Finland's oldest and largest city park, located in Turku's eastern centre near to Kupittaa train station. The large area is a fantastic place to spend the entire day with the family, with plenty of free activities. Of course, there is a small charge for some of the park's amusements, so don't forget your wallet. For families with children, Kupittaa Park has other interesting attractions, including the Adventure Park, a favourite amongst the locals. The splendid and inviting collection of installations for play and exercise, such as climbing frames, slides and swings, make it a place to easily spend an entire day. It’s also free! The Adventure Park has a children's pedal car circuit called Traffic Park, with little buildings and traffic lights. Held in the park in August is the Music Picnic, a music festival designed for the whole family - another activity that's completely free! www.turku.fi/seikkailupuisto


Flowpark – a top choice!

SuperPark opened in Turku in spring 2016, and quickly became a place popular wih school-children. Great value at 17 euros for the day, the facility is packed with trampolines, climbing walls, game zones, scooter tracks, skating structures and other endless entertainment for sporty kids. A bonus of the facility is that as an indoor activity park it's open all year round, come rain or shine – and that goes for the adults too. Don't forget, under the same roof is Caribia. The large themed spa, with whirlpools and waterslides, is perfect for the kids to have a splash at the end of a fun and busy day in SuperPark. www.superpark.fi

4. SPORTS PARK

5. JUKUPARK

This is the place where the name says it all! Surrounding Turku's Paavo Nurmi Stadium is a large public park, where you can go jogging, athletics training, play basketball or volleyball, do a workout on fitness machines or have a round of frisbee golf. You'll find a skating rink there in winter and, if nature is reliable, then some cross-country skiing is also possible. The area is free to access, except when public events are organised at the Stadium, but you will need to bring your own balls or traing equipment. Operating close to the sports park is the Samppalinna Lido – a thriving summer spot for locals. Because the lido is run by Turku City, entrance fees are low, around the same as public swimming halls - children €3, adults €5.50. www.turku.fi

There's no better way to spend a sunny summer's day than splashing around in a water park. In Turku, the place to go is JukuPark. A pass to the park is 21 euros, where you can enjoy the entire day in the pools, and where there are more than ten different waterslides. If you only want to go for a few hours, there arediscounted ticket prices available for the evenings. For adults and those wishing to soak themselves in sun rather than water, there is a large sunbathing area. Naturally, of course, you'll also find JukuPark offers some lovely saunas – because, after all, we're in Finland, not Florida! www.jukupark.fi

into human wars, but tournament skills live on in the form of equestrian sports and culture. “For me, it’s about the riding, the skill of horse and human in unison,” says Jaakko Nuotio. “The attention of spectators is often drawn first to the equipment, which is of course magnificent. However, their primary function is a practical one. Armour has been made to protect riders in the past from violent attacks.” This year, all tournament competitions are held
on horseback. In the fast and fascinating discipline known as Skill at Arms, riders get points for their riding and use of weaponry along the course. The Melee is team combat using clubs, frenetically striking opponents from the saddle of a horse. The tournament’s most commonly known discipline is the Joust. Here, competitors ride fast at each other with four-metre-long lances. Points are scored when the wooden tips of the lance break across the opponent’s shield. If you can’t come to the Turku Castle tournament, you can also see the skillful horses and riders of the Rohan Stables in riding shows at the Medieval Markets 28 June-1 July.

GROUPS

The massive silhouette of Turku Castle looms against the blue sky, whilst stomping and neighing is heard from the edge of the park. From behind the horse enclosure a man in glistening armour walks into the field of vision, with a velvet-dressed maiden by his side. What on earth could be about to happen? The Turku Castle Medieval Tournament is a sight to behold, drawing spectators from far afield. Now organised for the third time, the tournament hosts both the Finnish Championships and, only for summer 2018, the European Championships in Historical Riding. Participants from approximately ten different countries are expected to attend. “Riding enthusiasts competing in tournament combat globally, number only a hundred,” says Jaakko Nuotio of Rohan Stables. He continues: “Originally, tournament culture developed within the armies of Europe, with soldiers practicing skills they would need in battle, drawing an audience in the process. The first reference to tournaments is in 11th Century France.” Fortunately, horses are no longer drawn

HISTORY AND ART

There’s plenty more ‘horsing around’ taking place in the autumn as well, on the Turku Day weekend 15-16 September. The traditional Metsämäki racetrack is the place to see both familiar faces and the Nordic Championship races. “The races are, above all, a social event,” explains Roger Johansson from Turku Hippos. He continues: “Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be a gambler to love racing. Nowadays, 95% of bets laid are done so from the sofa at home, and most come to Metsämäki to enjoy the atmosphere.”

In recent years the race culture, formerly dominated by middle-aged men, is now attracting more women and families. Also, at Metsämäki there is a programme of harness-racing, where the enthusiasts are predminantly women. Horse-riding has seen the arrival of a lovely new breed of hobby-horses, with passionate enthusiasts creating a phenomenon that has attracted international interest. The loveable hobby-horses also join the Metsämäki Nordic Races - welcome news for kids and the young at heart!

You don’t need to be a gambler to love racing. Metsämäki has been the home track for the young racer, Kiss my Turku. Its winnings were put to good use at the local children’s hospital. Kiss my Turku also won the annual Turku award in 2016.

INFO

In spring, the Main Stage continues with PIAF -jag ångrar ingenting (PIAF – I have no regrets). Piaf neglected both friends and love, abandoning many for the sake of her career. When her death drew near she eventually reconciled with her past. Performed on the Studio Stage is HJORT, which is based on Josef Julius Wecksell’s tragedy Daniel Hjort. The drama is set in 16th Century Turku and Turku Castle. The life of a young man is rocked by love, treachery, manipulation and revenge. Coming to the Main Stage in autumn is Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. Jane Eyre is poor, orphaned and plain. However, having a spark in her soul and strongly believing in intuition, she embarks on a complicated journey to a happier and more confident life. Åbo Svenska Teater’s presentation does not solely reflect the novel, but seeks to transform the timeless themes and compelling atmosphere into fascinating theatre. In November and December, produced in cooperation with the impressive AB Dance Company, is the family fairytale dance of The Snow Queen, based on the story by H. C. Andersen. The theatre warmly welcomes groups to enjoy behind the scenes guided tours and workshops. Theatre facilities are available for private hire, for example the crystal chandeliers of restaurant Tiljan provides the perfect setting for a meeting or celebration.

TOURIST TOUR – DOES IT SOUNDS LIKE A DRY COUPLE OF HOURS WITH THE MOST BORING HISTORY TEACHER YOU CAN REMEMBER? FORGET ALL YOUR PRECONCEPTIONS AND JOIN A VISIT TURKU TOUR, WHERE THE DIVERSE TOUR SELECTION HAS BEEN DESIGNED FOR MODERN TASTES. ENCHANTING WALKS, ENTHRALLING STORIES

When someone says 'tourist tour', what comes to your mind? Dusty books and dates in history that you'll never remember? Forget that. The world has changed and Visit Turku's tourist tours have changed with it. "Nowadays, there's a clear trend toward experiential walking tours," explains Visit

Turku's Satu Hirvenoja, before continuing: "Turku's a city that's particularly pleasurable getting to know on foot. Having grown up around the River Aura environment, Turku is a beautiful and compact city, meaning distances are short. In total, there are about thirty different walking tours, which can be ordered for groups."

The diverse selection of tours are designed for modern tastes. On the shipyard tour, you'll see where luxury cruiseliners are built.

TOP OF THE TOURS – MEYER SHIPYARD

Finland is a maritime industrial county, and with the many thousands of stories to tell, Turku is an important part of that shipbuilding history. For example, did you know that the former president of Finland, Mauno Koivisto, worked at the Turku harbour in his youth? Or that just a few years ago it seemed the shipyards were not worth maintaining, coming near to being closed. Now, in Pansio, the Meyer shipyard has restarted the engine, with their books full of orders

long into the 2020's. One of the hottest products is the Visit Turku shipyard tour, where you can become familiar with the real shipyard as well as the stories about the maritime industry in Turku. "The shipyard tours are organised a lot for groups but during summer, tickets are also available for individuals from the tourist office or via the online shop," Satu Hirvenoja points out. Another place where you can explore the industry and innovation of Turku is the new Joki - Visitor and Information Centre. 85


Through Visit Turku, you can find guide services in 16 different languages.

It operates from within the Science Park, a joint university and business world, introducing to tourists the innovations from Turku. CLASSIC SITES AND CURRENT TRENDS

Visit Turku has excellent tour guides, from who you can order the most diverse selection of guided tours in 16 different languages. Classic tours are organised several times a week during summer and you can buy individual tickets online or from the tourist information office. A genuine classic is the one and half hour Turku Sightseeing bus tour, during which you can survey from the outside the most significant sites in Turku. From the castle to the

cathedral, hear about the fascinating periods of the city's history, from medieval times to the present day, from the excellent guides. If travelling with children, the Koiramäki bus tour is highly recommended. Based on the children's stories by Mauri Kunnas, it includes adventures around Turku Castle, aboard the Sigyn ship and in Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum. The cherry on the cake is one of our newest tours – perhaps the top tour of the future. At Christmas time, with Visit Turku, you can explore the Turku Christmas traditions on the atmospheric Christmas Walks. Buy a ticket from the online shop.

On the guided Christmas Walk, get the sense of Turku's Christmas traditions. 86


The Koiramäki tour is a classic.

THEMED SPECIALITIES

Is Turku and Finland's history something you know well? Don't worry, there's a good tour for you too! For groups, there are themed tours available for such things as architecture, influential Turku women or the local underworld. Also, the fictional Turku detective Jussi Vares even has his own tour. During the tour, discover the wellknown places from the detective series, as well as Vares' favourite bar, the New Pharmacy Pub. Have a look at Visit Turku's do-it-yourself tours. For instance, on the next spread are the restaurants of the Food Walk card. Just pop the card in your pocket and head out on a culinary tasting trip of the local restaurants.

WHAT IS BEST RIGHT NOW IN TURKU? LET A LOCAL Ă…BORIGINAL FROM THE TURKU RESTAURANT INDUSTRY EXPLAIN.

On the Architecture Walk, see, among others, the Maalaistentalo building, designed by Alvar Aalto.

As Finland's oldest city, Turku represents everything, from the echoes of history, to modern city culture. All year round, the different events bring colour to the cityscape, blowing a breeze from all corners of the world. The River Aura landscape and places along it are part of the most famous city sights, and all within easy access. Top tip: try the Food Walk tour - it will leave a good taste in your mouth! 87
