Turku, located in the region of Southwest Finland, is one of Finland's biggest cities. The versatile livelihood structure, top class selection of education, culture, and services, as well as the beautiful archipelago, form a magnetic combination in Turku.
Action for the Baltic Sea Region
Located at the crossroads of the Baltic Sea where shipbuilding, the harbour and international trade have shaped the way of life, Turku has always been an international city.
Turku is especially active in the Baltic Sea cooperation, partly due to its history as the former capital of Finland and gateway to the world. Today, Turku is the home of Finland’s maritime cluster, where the biggest, most luxurious and environmentally advanced cruise ships sailing the oceans are designed and built.
