Turku Cathedral

A hugely significant building, this is the seat of the Archbishop of Finland and is the country’s national sanctuary.

Many people have this 13th-century cathedral down as Finland’s most important historic building.

When it was first built the cathedral was made almost exclusively from wood, before a stone rebuild took place in the 1400s.

Among the famous historical figures buried at Turku Cathedral is Karin Månsdotter, the 16th-century Queen of Sweden, and you’ll be able to spot her marble sarcophagus quite clearly.
