Turku returns to the map
The ’Turku Returns to the Map’ tour tells how the people of Turku colonised the bottom of a lakes, the tops of cliffs, steep riverbanks and the flat fields of their town.
Most parts of the town that you will see have been rebuilt countless times. En route you will hear about misfortune and strokes of luck, the demolition and preservation of the old, as well as the changing of plans in quite a different direction from what had been originally intended. The face of the town never looks the same on two consecutive days. Let’s go and see how it looks today.
The cultural exercise routes created in the Central Park of Culture and Exercise project offer culturally enhanced exercise routes. The urban exercise routes and tours focus along and about the River Aura.
