The Tall Ships' Races

The Tall Ships Races sailing event is coming to Turku in late July 2017. The races promise to be one of the most impressive events of the centenary of Finland's independence.

In Turku, the fact that the tall ships can be brought all the way into the city centre lends a wholly unique atmosphere to the event. All the participating ships will be anchored in a very small area on both sides of the River Aura, which divides the city. As a result, all services will be available nearby, contributing to the event's dense and lively atmosphere.

Literary Sopot

This year’s sixth edition of the “Sopot by the Book”, organized by the Municipal Public Library in Sopot and the City of Sopot, will take place on 17-20 August. Each year organizers select one country, which literature becomes the leading theme of the Festival. This year, readers will have a chance to delve into the literature and culture of Spanish.
