Canada’s largest online travel website, Flight Network, listed 29 of the best European music festivals for 2018. Turku Music Festival was among the 29 for the second year in a row.
“A highly-regarded festival featuring top-notch artists such as Jonas Kaufmann, Elīna Garanča, Sonya Yoncheva, Kristine Opolais, Valery Gergiev and Rolando Villazón, Finland’s Turku Music Festival is a versatile city-wide event that offers festival-goers everything from large orchestral concerts and chamber music, to recitals and jazz shows.
Between concerts, attendees can soak in the beauty of Turku by dining in one of many restaurants along the Aura River, wandering through the medieval fortress of Turku Castle, or exploring the Turku Cathedral, which houses a royal tomb and history museum. As the oldest continuously running music festival in Finland, Turku Music Festival is a favorite among those with a refined taste in music.”
