Geocache Description:


 The location 

Turku Castle (Finnish: Turun linna, Swedish: Åbo slott) is a medieval building in the city of Turku in Finland. Together with Turku Cathedral, the castle is one of the oldest buildings still in use in Finland. Turku Castle is the largest surviving medieval building in Finland. It was founded in the late 13th century and stands on the banks of the Aura River.

 The task 

Take a picture of the castle so that some part of yourself is visible in the picture as well. Like, a happy thumb up or a bright smile in the foreground, and add the photo to your log.

If you like, you can take the photo also from some other side of the castle, the coordinates just take you to the iconic, best recognized side.

You can even enter the courtyard freely when the main entrance gate is open. Exact opening hours are visible next to the gate, coordinates can be found in a child waypoint.

Please, try to avoid using old pictures taken before this cache was published.
