As Finland’s oldest city, Turku enjoys a rich cultural life and has much to offer the visitor, with numerous museums, art galleries, theatres and concert halls. Its two most famous landmarks, Turku Castle and Turku Cathedral, were built in the late 13th century and are the oldest buildings in Finland which are still in use. The castle has been a functional museum since 1881 and hosts a number of important events annually, from medieval reenactments to modern pop and rock concerts.
