Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We came from the UK especially to visit Moomin World as our autistic daughter (in her 20’s) has always loved the moomins, and has been asking to visit for years.
    Entrance fee was expensive considering there are no rides and not that much going on (you could see everything within a couple of hours) but the place is quite charming, with characters wandering about and interacting with guests. As Finland is so expensive, we took our own lunch, however had a plate of 2 pancakes which were about 8 euros. For us, to fulfil our daughter dream of coming to Moomin World, the cost was well worth us and we spent several hours there.

    We visited Naantali on an organised tour by coach from Turku port, before taking a steamer from Naantali back to Turku. The old town was very quiet, and it was pleasant to look around the old buildings. There are also a number of waterside restaurants. The church has an imposing high level position, but we could not enter as it was shut. We found the town worth visiting to experience quite an individual atmosphere.

    Tour in the gardens of presidential residence in Kultaranta was really worth of visit. The tour guide was excellent and explained the history of Kultaranta in a capturing way. The weather in July was favourable and the gardens were blooming.

    This museum is situated in two separate places (Hiilola and Humppi) on the outskirts of the same square. You may visit both of them with one ticket.

    Hiilola is the old house and the yard of a merchant family. This historical complex of buildings tells an emotional story about living in Naantali in the 19th century.

    Humppi is a more traditional museum and it includes archaeological items, stories about the history of Naantali nunnery and monastery (1443-1577) and special exhibits.

    Humppi is quite small and I loved Hiilola more. However, both of them are worth visiting.

    Casa Haartman is the home museum of the artist Axel Haartman and his wife Hedvig. The house is from 1920's, designed by Erik Bryggman, an architect much appreciated in Finland and known abroad especially for his Recurrection Chapel (in Turku). This house was the Haartman family home for nearly 40 years, and Axel also had his atelier there. This is a charming place to visit, since the home is pretty much intact and lets the visitor get a genuine glimse into the everyday family life and circumstances of two cultural and cultivated persons.

    1934 builded Ukko-Pekka bridge, in these days is in light vehicle and walking use only, and in the middle of the bridge is a open spot in a fence, from where you can step to the other side of it and get to the tiniest island called Raumakari.
    Raumakari, and specially the southern side of it, is very popular lure fishing place, on the bridge is usually many fishermen in a row. From the middle of the island you can find a very special monument. A big stone, witch is bolted to the rock underneath with a heavy chain. On the stone is a sign that says “Friendship stone”. The story behind the Friendship-stone is, that in the old days, people were tired of fighting between young men from the island of Luonnonmaa and from the continental Naantali. One very strong man brought a big stone for them in between, to Raumakari, and said that they could try their strengths by lifting the stone and not each other. Friendship stone has remain to this day as a symbol of peace, between islands and continental.
    There are also intresting rockhacks in the area, some of which have been there since the 18th century. Skillfully engraved year numbers and initials, some of them stand out very clearly.
    Some signs on the rocks also played an important role as landmarks or when monitoring the water levels of the area.
    The flow under the bridge is strong, and even in the coldest winters it does not freeze. Therefore, the place is the best destination for birdwatchers in winter, as in summer when you can spot summer doves nesting on the cliffs of the Kuparivuori.
    There are also couple of other things referring to shipping traditions: various mooring rings and rock hooks for boat mooring and rock formations that have been rounded off beautifully by seawater flow.

    In the forests of Rymättylä, Naantali, on the island of Aaslaluoto rises the small mountain of Karhuvuori. In the year 1938 a look out tower was built on the mountain to spot the ships and airplanes of the enemy during the Winter and Continuation wars. Years later the tower burnt down, but later on it was rebuilt to the same place. To the mountain rises quite steep paths. The paths are marked, and you can reach the mountain from two directions. From the direction of Hanka and the direction of the Hämmärönsalmi ferry. On a hot day a water bottle is a good idea because the mountain rises 63 m up from the sea level. From the top can see the stunning view to sea in the east, the Seili island on south and islands and reefs belonging to Rymättylä in the west.

    It was not until the 20th century that the inlet was possible to be crossed with a bridge. Previously the inlet had to be crossed with a ferry. Over the almost 300 m meter long bridge leads a walking path from which is able to see the view along the inlet.
