Turku – the congress city
Turku, in the Southwest corner of Finland, is the oldest city and the first capital of the country. Today it is the capital of its region, Southwest Finland. Turku is often said to be the only West European town in Finland as all medieval European towns have four things in common: a river for transport, a cathedral for religious power, a castle that represents the secular power and last but not least – a marketplace for acts of commerce. Turku has them all! Please visit the Visit Turku website for more information.
