Cities around the country are once again getting into the Christmas spirit, offering a number of joulu-themed markets with all manner of items on sale to enhance your Christmas cheer.
Turku transforms itself into the Christmas City of Finland every year, distracting itself from the darkening winter to stage Old Great Square Christmas Markets each weekend leading up to Christmas. Here you can find craftsmen’s stalls, Christmas performances and ample amounts of Christmas lights. Santa’s elves will be taking note of Christmas wishes in Santa’s secret book, and the Children’s Christmas Market offers a range of activities aimed at the smaller members of the family. Brinkkala courtyard is filled with a stage and market offering fairy tales, dance and music.
