Urban Legend Since 1229

TURKU BLOSSOMED IN ITS PRESENT LOCATION BEFORE FINLAND WAS YET TO FIND ITS PLACE ON THE MAP. THE EVOLUTION OF THIS EUROPEAN CIVILISATION GREW AROUND THE BISHOP’S DIOCESE AND AS A CITY OF THE MEDIEVAL HANSEATIC LEAGUE. SINCE THEN, TURKU HAS SEEN THE LAUNCH OF THE REFORMATION, THE WRITTEN LANGUAGE, THE ESTABLISHMENT OF UNIVERSITY EDUCATION AND, UNTIL 1827, HAS BURNT TO THE GROUND AT REGULAR INTERVALS. THIS MIGHT EXPLAIN WHY TURKU HAS LEARNT TO EASILY RENEW ITSELF AND DEVELOP CULTURE ALL AROUND.
