Turku, the capital of Western Finland, is a meeting point for new ideas and trends. Turku has always had contacts in all directions. Turku and Southwest Finland are a colorful combination of old and new, large and small. The history of Turku Castle and the Cathedral dates back to the 13th century while the future is being built by the active economic life of the region, by our three universities and by research in high technology.
The City of Turku is a versatile and practical environment for a conference or a congress. There are good traffic connections from all over Europe. The facilities, the services, and the possibilities for social programs are excellent in Turku. Congress venues and accommodation can be provided for thousands of congress visitors.
Among our special treats for you are a unique archipelago; a rich history – the medieval banquet at Turku Castle, the treasures of the rediscovered city of the Aboa Vetus museum, the Luostarinmäki Handicrafts Museum and the Cathedral; the Moominworld in the close by city of Naantali and several quality cultural events such as the music festivals of Turku and Naantali.
