Turku Medieaval market 30.6.–1.6.2017

Turku medieval market is held in the old market of the town that is surrounded by old buildings. Park next to market place is reserved for reenactors, craftsmen and performers. We visited tents of friends and got to know new interesting people. We hanged around Merry Swan tent where Mervi with her Swedish friends sew woolen intarsia piece. It looked so interesting, that I will test it someday. I have lots of wool fabric remnants to work with.

We participated tour where according dressed guide explained all the interresting details of live in the castle. Reenactors displayed life and duties of people that would have lived in medieval Turku Castle. Castle is surprisingly large and there is lots of rooms in 4-5 levels. We walked through it twice, but still I think we missed one part of it. Castle has permanent exhibitions and visiting exhibitions.
