The castle is located in the south of the city and it dates from the 1280s, the highlights of the castle exhibition include two dungeons and a wonderful banquet halls as well as a museum housed in the maze of restored rooms of the castle’s old bailey.
While almost the entire city was destroyed by the great fire one area that was spared was Luostarinmaki which is now host to a handicrafts museum.
Then there are the two museums of Aboa Vetus and Ars Nova. The first one is about the history of the city while the second is a museum of modern art and is housed in the ancient remains of an old building.
If you’re in the mood for a bit of relaxation you should visit the Ruissalo national park which is located on an island where you can find a championship level golf course so even more of a great thing if you’re an avid golfer.
