The best things to do this summer in Turku take full advantage of the fantastic weather you’ll find in Finland at this time of year. You may think of the country as primarily ice and snow, beautiful Scandinavian architecture and design, and lots and lots of little islands. However, there’s so much more to Finland than this, especially in Turku and especially in the summer, when the weather is just right for exploring all of the town’s outdoor attractions.

    This European town checks all of the medieval charm boxes: picturesque market square, lovely riverfront, historic castle and cathedral and more. But for all of Turku’s history, the city also claims a fair amount of modern charm and was, in 2011, named the European Capital of Culture for the year.

    See what all the hype is about when it comes to these cartoon characters

    Moomin World brings to life the illustrated characters from Tove Jansson’s Moomin series. Though the series boasts a Finnish origin, cartoon fans around the globe have come to love the adorable hippopotamus-like characters around which the books revolve.

    As the theme park doesn’t feature any rides and, instead, is all about immersing you in the world of Moomins, you may want to brush up on your Moomin lore before you visit. However, even if you don’t, most kids will still love the park, with its educational-yet-fun content and its ranking as one of the best theme parks in the world.
