Welcome to Turku – Trip to Ruissalo

Are you new in Turku and wondering where to get started? Or are you an existing international talent who is looking to expand your network? We welcome you to our information and networking events, organized by International House Turku and Turku Science Park Ltd. All internationals are welcome to participate!

Our Welcome to Turku series is back! We kick things off this autumn with a trip to the nearby island of Ruissalo. Join us on the famous Föli ‘water bus’ as we explore the archipelago and perhaps enjoy a coffee watching the boats go by.

We will meet at the water bus stop at Martinsilta Bridge (Google Maps link here) at 16.00. There is a return water bus leaving Ruissalo at 18.00, arriving back in Turku City centre at 18.25. There are also many regular buses to and from Ruissalo, so participants can leave earlier or stay on the island as they wish. 

This event will cover the cost of the water bus tickets; participants are responsible for buying their own food on the island. Registration in advance is required. The language of the event is English.
