What are we going to do

Originally I got this idea when I was in Prague in 2003. I participated in ghost walks there and when I came home I wondered why we don't have same kind of an experience here in Turku.

Because there wasn't any, I had to do it by myself. I went through national archives website and newspapers that have been published in the early 1900s. I researched with keywords: murder, killing, robbery, theft. So the crime stories I tell you, are taken from the actual newspapers. Ghost stories that I share with you are collected from local folklore, some I have heard or read by myself.

The experience takes place in the central part of Turku: Aurajoki, hills of Vartiovuori and Samppalinna. Starts at Turku city library stairs.

Duration of the experience: approximately 2 hours
Roughly 4 km of walking

I can provide this experience in English or Finnish, depending on your preferences.

Join me for this experience! I hope that after hearing my dark stories, you will see our lovely hometown of Turku in a new way, darker way.
