I visited the Turku Medieval Market for the first time. I especially liked the costumes that almost all the salesmen/women had and the booths were decorated as Medieval too. There were many different handicraft demonstration and other interesting stuff too. A whole pork was roasting...More

Really nice event, maybe the best time to go to Turku! Everybody wearing medieval suits and you can't believe how real it look! There are some shows and little concerts taking place, at some point you forget that you are 21. century!

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...More

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.
