|| Turku - Hanseatic Days
Turku, Finland’s oldest city, will celebrate its 775th birthday in 2004. During the same year, the city will have the pleasure of hosting the 2004 Hanseatic Days of Modern Times. We are especially happy that Tarja Halonen, the President of Finland, has agreed to serve as patron of Hanseatic Days in Turku. Turku has chosen ’Vitality Through Co-operation’ as its theme for the Hanseatic Days event. The theme signifies Turku’s desire to further strengthen co-operation between the Hansa cities and promote close and active connections with regard to trade and industry, culture, science and co-operation among youth. We, the residents of Turku, believe that there are opportunities for co-operation between the Hansa cities in many fields. We would like to invite all of the Hansa cities to begin participation in joint projects already prior to 2004.
Turku is home to Finland’s most famous and popular Medieval Market during Hanseatic Days. The Old Great Square is filled with over one hundred actors playing the roles of all social classes, from peasantry to nobility, clergy to merchants and artisans to fools. The authentic market milieu is created by the rustic market stalls, which flog all manner of goods, such as sheepswool, wooden spoons, breads, sausages, spices, jewellery – everything a person living in the Middle Ages could ever need. Musicians entertain and delight market guests.
We would like to extend an invitation to all Hanseatic City actors, musicians, dancers and merchants to participate in the Medieval Market. The Market is a central programme entity of Turku’s Hanseatic Days
