Looks like a fun place to browse for bargains.

@beach: It is fine place to spend free time. You can taste different countries' dishes and buy other products and meet friends.

Just toured Turku via Google maps. There is a lot of water around. I liked the golf course on Kuuvu. Looks like a very pretty city. I was disappointed, though. I didn't see Leevi anywhere.

@beach: It's great to read your interest. Turku is a great place to visit during the summer. The great event is the Tall Ships Race at the end of July. Then we have a lot of guests and happy lives. Before that is a three day-long Ruisrock with nearly 100,000 people. From Turku you can make cruises to the Archipelago Sea or quickly visit Stockholm. This is a pretty good place for such a small city. Leevi does not want to be in such a lively place. It enjoys a quiet walk and when the stranger's folks want to iron and tap it.

Looks like a popular, well-attended event......coupled with perfect weather!!

That looks like a fun market with lots of stuff on offer. Nice weather, too. It's dark and a bit wet here.
