Turku’s incredible River, Cathedral and Airport

Turkuis the city on Finland’s southwest coast situated right at the Aura Rivermouth. This is an old town, as old as 13th century so this is the oldest city of Finland. In history in 1809 when the area was taken over by Russia, the capital of the then Finnish Grand Duchy of Finland used to be Helsinki. This city has been an important populous city and regional capital too. That is why the visitors look for historical traces in museums. This city has also been the capital of Estonia and also designated as the European Capital of Culture for 2011.
