Why visit Turku Castle in Finland?

If you find yourself in Finland and you are looking to explore some of the country’s history and culture, a day trip to Turku Castle is highly recommended. Founded in the late 13th century, the castle is the largest medieval building in the country and one of the oldest still in use anywhere in Finland. Throughout its long history the castle has seen many battles and sieges, however, the enormous 5-meter thick walls have ensured that it still remains standing today. After extensive renovations in the 1980s, Turku Castle is now a popular tourist site and home to the most visited museum in the country. Although there is an airport in the local town, most visitors come by road as it is only a short journey from the capital Helsinki.
