COAST and ARCHIPELAGO

Visit Turku, Tommi Selander

Finland’s coast boasts the world’s largest archipelago. This includes old wooden towns, lighthouses, historical manors and stone churches, large national parks stretching over land and sea, beaches, handicraft markets, small town events, cafes and village shops – this area is called the Archipelago of Finland.

The people at the coast are very laid back and have a strong maritime culture and islander laid-back lifestyle. You can best experience them in the summer time.
