*Turku Castle has stood guard over the mouth of the River Aura since the 1280s bearing witness to many major turning points in Finnish history. The halls and chambers of the main castle have witnessed major turning points in history as well as other dramatic events such as the insult of the corpse of Klaus Fleming and the dreadful fate of many human prisoners. There have been royal visits in the Middle Ages castle and luxurious court life during the rule of Duke John and Katarina Jagellonica. The interiors of the bailey, decorated according to the styles of various periods, present the history and culture of Turku Castle and Finland.
