Every time I visit Turku I always pop into the cathedral. Regardless of how many times I see it, it'll always be a treat on the eye and leave me smiling. The outside doesn't really represent what you'd see inside. Both are still visually beautiful and if you like history, you'll love it. Winter, Sring, Summer, Fall...its doesn't matter. All... More

Full of history, super beautiful cathedral. Not take long time to visit, because it is next to city centre. Maybe not the most interesting for little children.

I always take my foreign guest to see this church. It might not be all gold and glory, but it is a wonderful and huuuuge church and a bit piece of Turku's history. Also in December they have the biggest Christmas tree in front the the church!

Definitely worth a visit on your wanderings through Turku -no service was on so we walked straight in. There is no charge to look around.

I like to visit churches and cathedrals when I am travelling although I am not at all into religion. The Turku Cathedral is definitely a place to visit. Impressive about details and size. Don't miss it !

The Turku Cathedral has a special feeling inside. It is high with Gothic interior, but looks quite different on the outside. I has a special atmosphere, because it's sparingly decorated with very little gold and thus does not express wealth and power of its founders. However, it still praises the craftsmen, who have given their skills to it for a... More

Place to stop by, when visiting Turku. Beautiful area next to river Aura. No need to stay there more than 30mins.

The Turku Cathedral is the most magnificient church in Turku and also in the whole of Finland. Its history is very interesting and the museum there tells of the happenings and persons connected with the history of the church. It has had its central place in Turku for centuries and is the place for many splendid concerts at Christmas time... More

A huge protestant cathedral. Simplistic, but grand in design. Interesting relics on the sides. Occasionally holds events.
