Castles are rare in Finland. Raasepori Castle is quite small, but very intresting place to visit. It is a bit tricky to walk about in the castle if you have poor legs because the steps and floors are uneven.

The castle isn't huge and going there without a guide could be a disappointment. But with someone depicting the activities that took place there when it was inhabitated, makes you appreciate the visit. At the time of construction, this part of Finland belonged to Sweden.

Beautiful and relaxing walk with the old castle built on top of a rock, scattered country houses, a quiet river and a flock of sheeps

A great place to visit. Everything is close and not much time is needed. The surroundings are beautiful, the ruins are fascinating and the staff friendly. Makes a great quick stop when driving around the area.

Really beautiful castle, low enterprise. I recommend it for people who like to visit old historical places. Especially in summer it's really nice!

You can almost stumble across the place! Lots to fascinate - and they hold events here too. A really nice addition to a break when touring the area.
