Facts about the oldest town in Finland.

Facts about the oldest town in Finland.     Turku is the oldest town in Finland and celebrates its 770th anniversary this year, 1999. The city is situated on banks of the River Aura in south-western Finland and has therefore always had a natural connection both with the Baltic Sea and Sweden, and with inland areas. The archipelago just outside Turku is acclaimed as the most beautiful one in the world. Turku is the fifth largest city in Finland with approximately 170,000 inhabitants that speak either Finnish or Swedish - or both. The three universities make Turku an important university town in Finland and keeps the traditions alive: the first university in Finland, the Royal Academy, was established in Turku in 1640.
