Here’s a list of Top Architecture Firms/ Architects in Turku, Finland. Located at the mouth of River Aura in the southwestern region of Finland, Turku (Swedish- Åbo) is the former capital and the oldest city in Finland. It was the capital city of Finland under the rule of the Swedish and then the Russians until 1812, after which Helsinki became the capital city. The great fire of 1827 nearly destroyed the city and resulted in Architect Carl Ludwig Engel rebuilding the city, only to be damaged again in World War II. Government buildings and Turku University have shifted to Helsinki, the new capital, after this fire. 

Turku, Finland remains an important industrial centre – with sugar refining, steel, electronics and textile industries, the largest winter port and important naval shipyards. It is also the cultural capital of the country with fine-quality restaurants and cafes which have led to Turku being called “Paris of Finland”.
