Put on your warmest clothes and enjoy walking along the canal. Lovely monuments and pieces of art. Marine museums. You can end up with visiting the famous Turku castle or go direct to the Silja Line terminal.

In this museum next to Turku Castle, you can explore the Finnish maritime and naval history. The museum has a big collection of vessels and museum ships. For example, you can visit the sailing ship Suomen Joutsen, the warship Karjala and the museum ship Bore.
