There are a few things that are must see’s in Turku when you visit.

One, especially if you are a runner is the statue of Paavo Nurmi:

Turku, FinlandNurmi was known as the flying Finn.  He was an amazing runner in the early 20th century.

Of course, there is the river too:

And what is a visit to Turku, without seeing the Cathedral:

Turku, FinlandI worked my way down the river towards the Cathedral so I could get a picture of the Cathedral with the city flag – I thought it had a neat effect.

And what better way to end a full day, than with a glass of Port wine, overlooking the river, while you wait for the bus to go back to Helsinki.
