The history of Turku Castle goes back to 1280's.
In the course of the centuries, a fortified base built
for the royal governor of Finland and his troops
gradually expanded into a massive gray stone castle.
Today, the castle is one of the most popular tourist
attractions in Finland.
Popular attractions in the Castle include the Stone,
Bronze, Iron Age and Medieval Exhibitions, the scale
models of “Duke John and Catherina Jagellonica”
displaying Renaissance court life, the prison where
King Eric XIV was kept, medieval wooden sculptures,
and the collections of old toys and fire fighting
equipment. For those interested in coins, medals and
guns, there is also plenty to see.
