Over seven hundred years old, the Turku Castle was built to be a military fortress. Today, it is one of the largest medieval castles in Scandinavia.
Love the shadows on the last one.
Any myths/legends relating to the Turku Castle?
Not really or at least none that I know of… but it was used as a prison in the 19th century. Also, in the 15th century, it had a real moat that surrounded the castle and met with the Aura River.
