Turku Castle

The stately Turku Castle has guarded the mouth of the Aura River since the late 13th century. The tall granite walls conceal unique moments from history within them. Over the course of its history, the castle has been defended and besieged, its governors changed and during Duke John’s era, the castle became a stage for court life.

The medieval rooms of the keep and the ballrooms built by Duke John allow visitors to experience the splendour and bleakness of times past. The main exhibition and period rooms in the bailey give us a sense of what life was like throughout the centuries. Prison cells tell us of a time when almost the entire bailey functioned as a prison.
