About Annamari - the Doer

Walking is the best and most convenient way to exercise, and doing it in the beautiful surroundings makes it even better. Aura Riverside scenery varies every day and according to season.
My passion for history and good stories widens the views.

Originally, I moved to Turku to study at the university and fell in love with this town. Once you get to know all the stories and history behind the scenes, you will be in love too.
In May 2017, I was authorised as a Turku local guide.
Join me on a walk in this beautiful town.
