Recommended Posts

Which caches do you have to recommend to a visiting swede in Turku? Preferrably central, since im there over the day. Also, which is the best and cheapest bank in Finland if I want a visa or a mastercard,online banking, and cheap foreign withdrawals?

Hi Nyman, welcome to Turku ;-)

 

When are you coming?

I'd say that allmost all central area caches are Ok, except maybe some mysteries.

How many caches have you planned to search?

Send me mail in my private mail: vilhyt@gmail.com so I can give you my phone number and be a help desk if you need help (in the case I'm available during your visit). I've been searching caches abroad and I know how frustraiting it can be not to be able to find caches due to language/cultural differencies.

 

Here's a list of caches that I would recommend. They are not too difficult and have text also in english.

 

Joulurauha GCZE7G

Puolalanmäki GC1F5VN

Ravintola Samppalinna GC16TEJ

Betel-kirkko GC137EQ

Apteekkimuseo GC11RXA

Pääkirjasto/Turku city library (Turun ytimessä 3) GCNJ1E

Turun ytimessä 4 GCT7HG

0 km: Turku GCZ1AH

Lönnrothin polku GC143VT

Jokiranta GCHV7Z

 

This cache is more difficult and it has some climbing. It is not recommended if you have better clothes on/ if it's slippery or wet, but it's very rewarding:

Six feet under ground GCVH35

 

For the bank question I would say that all banks are quite same, maybe best choice for a tourist would be Forex near the market place in Hansa-shopping centre. Also in swedish: www.forex.fi

 

Please mail me for more info. These are all, but last one, easy and quick caches close to the centrum.

Some of them I've searched long time ago so they may have changed little bit.

 

comments from other Turku area cachers?

I assume You arrive by boat to the Port of Turku. In that case these two caches are quick and easy:

Medieval Finland 7 - Turku Castle GCYWJG It is a multicache, but it´s a quick one, believe me I know, it´s ours.

Then in a very neighbourhood there´s M/S IsabellaGC5DCC which can be easily found at the same time.
