History of Russia and Finland are most closely intertwined during the accession of the Grand Duchy of Finland to the Russian Empire from 1808 to 1917. Meanwhile, contacts between the two countries have also been frequent, although not always friendly. The Finns received their sad experience from the beginning of the 13th century, marked by the territorial claims of the Russians, who tried to impose Orthodoxy on the border areas. Black pages of Abo-Turku history are connected with military campaigns of Peter I in the beginning of XVIII century, there are also negatives of more modern times.
Abo, just under the Swedish name Turku was mentioned in Russian documents until 1917. The history of the city itself, as well as more ancient settlements in its place goes back centuries. Remains of an ancient chapel were found during excavations on Ristimäki Hill in the county of Nummi-Halinen, and researchers believe that the name Turku has ancient Slavic roots. In general, the history of Abo Turku is very dramatic with territorial conflicts between neighboring countries, epidemics and fires.
Among the witnesses of distant eras is Turku Cathedral, more than 7 centuries old, and the ancient street, which has retained the name of Monastery Street. On the Old Square in July every year there is a folk crafts fair and theatrical festivals. Modern rhythms during the July rock festival can be heard on the island of Ruissalo. It is famous, among other things, for the “heavy karaoke” of fans singing hits with their favorite bands. The magnificent Botanical Gardens of the University of Turku tourists find here on the island.
