I am shocked to see so little on here about Turku. 35 lousy posts, mostly looking for jobs (something I have never seen before on TA). And few reviews of attractions.
We're spending a couple weeks in Scandinavia in June, and on one Wednesday night we will be taking the ferry from Stockholm to Turku, arriving at 7:45 AM and then leaving the next day around 10 AM. It seems to me there is much to see in and around Turku, especially the Cathedral, Castle, and Handicrafts museum (which Lonely Planet called one of the best museums in all of Finland). So how come there's so little on here?
On out trip - I did have a few questions:
* What's the best way to get from the ferry dock to the Radisson Blu Marina hotel?
* Is it plausible to see the Cathedral, Handicrafts museum and Castle all the same day?
* It will be the Thursday before Midsummer. I know everything is basically closed Fri-Sat, but it looks like most will be open on a Thursday, correct? Will restaurants be closing that night?
Thanks for the help!
