I visited Turku Cathedral during the summer and even after visiting other Cathedrals such as Antewrp and München I was pleasantly surprised by this “small” one. To anyone who is interested in Finnish history this is the place to explore. It’s not merely religious site...More

The Åbo/Turku domkyrka is the national shrine of Finland and the archbishop resides here. Built in the 13th century and rebuilt and restored several times (recently in the 1970-ies). Well worth seeing. For a small fee you can visit a museum part located on top...More
