    The old town of Naantali is very famous wooden town in Finland. It is known for its picturesque milieu, old wooden houses, winding streets and enchanting stories. History, romantic setting and local specialities create a unique destination worth the visit!

    Naantali's special characteristic is its setting by the sea. The story of Naantali began already in 1443 when a convent was decided to be built at the site. Nowadays only the convent church remains from those times and it is one of the most well-known landmarks in Naantali. The old town spreads next to the church and is cradled by the sea. 

    A visit to the Naantali old town is like stepping back in time. Did you know that all the houses in the old town have their own name? Or do you guess where the old sea bay stretched towards the area where Naantali's center is now situated? Might the names Sillankorva ("The corner of the bridge") and Sillanpää ("The end of the bridge") give any clue...
