Welcome to Turku, Finland

Turku, Finland’s oldest city, founded in 1229, is today one of Finland’s biggest cities. The city is a charming mixture of old and new, and a hub of education and health and life sciences innovation, making it a great setting for ECCB2024.

Turku’s compact size makes it easy to explore, with most hotels, restaurants, and attractions within walking distance. Urban life is focused around River Aura, with some of the most interesting sights located on its banks, such as the Turku Castle, the Old Town of Turku, and many museums. Known as the Food Capital of Finland, Turku also boasts a lively culinary scene.

If you have a chance, visit also the unique and beautiful Turku archipelago!
