Sitting at the mouth of the Aura River, Turku is one of Finland's quaintest and most historically rich towns. It is the country's oldest city, founded in the 13th century, and for several centuries it served as Finland's administrative center. Although many of its ancient buildings fell victim to The Great Fire of 1827, it boasts plenty of old and quirky charm. Its three universities help contribute to a lively bar, cafe, and dining scene. Museums, theatres, galleries, and a range of shopping opportunities provide plenty of activities for visitors. Turku is in Southwest Finland.
