Arctic Coast Guard Seminar 2019

Host City & Venue

City of Turku

The Castle and Cathedral are the two poles of historic Turku, between which just about every important site in the city can be found. The City of Turku came into existence at Koroinen, a few kilometers from the Turku market square. Trading took place on this historic site as early as in the 1150’s, and in 1229, the bishopric was transferred there as well. The year 1229 is also regarded as the year in which the City of Turku was founded.

It all began on the Aura river

Do you know how to recognize a European city dating from the Middle Ages? A riverfront, market square, castle, and cathedral, just to name a few. Sounds familiar – in fact, it sounds just like Turku. Turku is not only the one city in Finland that meets the above description, but it is also a destination filled with events and things to do, not to mention the European Capital of Culture for 2011.

You are most welcome to come and enjoy yourself in the cradle of history and culture! Visit Turku!
