Castles of Raasepori

from 228 €
During this tour you have a chance visit two totally different castles from different centuries and learn about Finnish culture and history in an authentic environment.
The pick up place for this memorable experience is the bus parking area by the Sky Wheel Helsinki. It is in the very center of Helsinki so you can’t miss it. The guide will be there to welcome you to the trip. You just step into a comfortable bus and start your expedition to Finnish culture and history.

Raasepori is situated in the south coast of Finland, 80 kilometers west from Helsinki. After getting away from the hustle and buzzle of the capital city, you can start to observe beautiful Finnish nature and the countryside. Also the first Finns came to this area about 12 000 years ago after the ice age.The local guide will tell you about the area and its special features.

The first destination is Mustio Manor, also called Mustio Castle. The Manor is one of the most precious manor houses in Finland with a history of more than two hundred years. The guide will tell you about the fascinating history of the building and the famous family, who has build and owned the manor througout the times.

Next to the manor, surrounded by the historical park, is an award-winning restaurant Slottskrogen, where you are served a delicious lunch made of local ingredients.
 
The second destination is Raasepori Castle, which is one of the five medieval castles in Finland. It tells the story of the fascinating Middle Ages, when Finland was part of the Swedish kingdom. The Raasepori Castle was a center of the coastal area during its hayday but it has also been a base for the pirates of the Baltic Sea. The guide will give you a glimpse of how it was to live in the castle and in Finland during those times.

After the guided tour, the afternoon coffee will be served in the restaurant Slottsknetkens Stuga by the castle. Maybe you would also like to taste some beverages brewed by the local breweries before heading back to Helsinki. The bus will then take you back to the original departure point.

Helsinki City

Helsinki Metropol Area, Finland

Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is a bubbly, edgy and intriguing city by the Baltic sea. Helsinki is such a green city with verdant parks, forests (in the city, yes), beautiful coastline and countless islands both big and tiny. Nature is always very close by. It’s almost like you are wrapped in a green and soothing hug. Can you imagine that a third of Helsinki is covered in green areas? That’s a lot of green. You can’t escape it and you really wouldn’t want to. Helsinki has a recharging effect.  

Address: Skatuddskajen 2 , 00160 Helsingfors
