Turku Market Square

Turku, Finland

The centre point of Turku's western city centre is, without a doubt, the Market Square.In the summer we wholeheartedly recommend having a coffee on the square with the natives. In the 1800s the current market square was known as Uusitori ("New Square"), as opposed to the main market square of its time, the Old Great Square, as it is known today. Today, the market square is a popular shopping and meeting place and an authentic tourist attraction. Turku mass transit bus stops are located around the square, as are numerous city businesses. On one side of the square, you'll see the Hansa shopping center, and exactly opposite it, the venerable Wiklund department store. The legendary hotel Hamburger Börs stands at attention on the third side and last, but not least, the Turku Orthodox Church fills out the final quarter.
