Welcome to Turku - a small and attractive cruise destination
Cruise tourism continues to be the fastest growing business in the global tourist industry. Cruise lines are constantly seeking new destinations with something special to offer and this is exactly what Turku has. Although fairly new on the Baltic cruise map Turku is an old city - the oldest in Finland (784 years in 2013) and the first capital until 1812. Situated on the south-western coast and surrounded by a beautiful archipelago with some 20,000 islands and islets it is a hidden gem to be discovered.
The assets of Turku as a cruise destination are the unique archipelago, clean nature, safety, access almost to the city centre by cruise ships, combination of old and new, and a wide variety of shore excursions and activities.
Turku Cruise Port is a member of Cruise Europe and a founder member of the successful Cruise Baltic.
