The Cathedral still in use and seem to be up to date with the needs of a modern Cathedral. A small museum inside the cathedral is worth a visit. The Ejby chalk is here to be seen.

This church is located by the river Aura in the city center, the entrance is free which is great! Amazing interior, with many benches where you can sit and enjoy the atmosphere and feel the history of past times.

A nice medieval cathedral in Finland's former capital, located near the city centre. Interior is also quite impressive. Entrance is free.

Turku's cathedral is outstanding. Despite the many changes throughout the time, we can still consider this church as a piece of the Middle Ages (XIII). It is a crucial place for the history of Finland. It features a museum and a cafe.
