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

I walked here along the river as recommended by the travel guide I read. There was a dance festival going on during my visit, so I didn’t go inside. But I walked around the outside which was interesting.
