Yeah for sure there are hundred million better casteles in the world, but if you're touring around Turku this is one of the "must" places. The Oldest Castle in Finland and with great history.

You can get there by bus nro 1 (Satama)

The castle is interesting, very different from the usual European castles types but nice nonetheless. I also went to a concert in the gardens, which was an excellent setting.

Though this castle has been largely rebuilt during the modern times based on the layout of ancient ruins, it gives a snapshot of the history of Turku during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The museum is interesting, particularly the costumes section.
There are several narrow stairs to climb!

Great medieval castle in Turku, Finland, where attractions like this are rare. Not very suitable for people with handicap, otherwise just perfect. Also various shows about history and art from Stone age to 21st century.

There is lots of stairs and no elevation. Beautiful place, but I guess it is familiar like all other castles...
