This medieval market in old historical city of Turku is phenomenal way to experience how it might be living under the authority of church and have a marketplace as a second living room with magicians and fortune-tellers. Everything is so authentically staged that you might easily forget yourself to have a feast with your senses. Photographers can have there one... More

One of the best happenings in Turku by far. Especially if there's a nice weather. Nothing beats wandering around the area in the nice weather. Huge variety of little carts where you can buy all sorts of items related to the theme. The price level is ridiculous though and don't swallow the first price they give. There's usually a lot...

Happens every year and there is a lot to see. A market place near Turku Cathedral is full of actors that are dressed and that are acting like they were from Medieval time. There is also a lot of crafts you can buy.

Medieval market didn't give that much for me. There's nothing really that wrong in there but wasn't my thing. Lot's of crowd and quite frankly the "medieval" stuff there is quite exppensive i think. Allthough some of them are crafted right there. But hey, it's free so if you happen to be in Turku at the time, check it out

Turku Medieval Market has become my favourite event of the year in Turku. You don't have to DO anything: just take a walk and enjoy the atmosphere. I like how it sounds, tastes, smells and looks like.

A fun fair really, similar to the Turku X-mas market or the Turku Herring market. I best liked the overpriced grilled porkbratwursts.

So, like I said, the market is held only a stones throw away from the centrum. Not 6,9km, like it said on the info. It's REALLY a worth a visit. There are lots of actors and craftsmen dressed up in medieaval costumes displaying the crafts of the medieval times (for example soapmaking, brewing beer, blacksmith work, coinmaking etc. these things...
