Turku is undergoing a cultural renaissance.
The fortress in Turku is one of the city's oldest buildings.
Turku in Finland is one of two cities designated as European Capital of Culture in 2011. Turku, however, went through a cataclysm almost 200 years ago in 1827 when much of it burned down in the Great Fire of Turku. To commemorate this there is an Infernal Musical, and we were there for a rehearsal. We also visit many other places of interest in the Old Town.
