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 kilometres 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.
Europeade is distinctly the largest annual celebration of folk culture in Europe. The five-day long event rolls out skilled and colourful shows from performance halls and stages to the streets and city squares.

Turku is the oldest city of Finland and was founded in 1229. It is located in the southwestern Finland, by the river Aura. The first capital of Finland has during times been a highly important gateway to the west. Port of Turku is a significant commercial hub with busy ferry traffic to Sweden, and the airport offers flight connections all over Europe.
