Laying home to the country’s second biggest university, Turku is understandably a vibrant hub of youth and energy; frenetic clubs entice students and young people in a frenzy of frivolous nightlife. The whole city embodies an underlying enthusiasm which translates into a sea of positivity and happiness – visitors from Sweden and Aland are greeted by a wave of warmth and welcoming locals proudly representing Finland and its values.
