Istanbul and Turku – the seven hills cities

A composite photo of Turku and Istanbul made by Photoshop

Both cities, Istanbul and Turku, are my loved ones. Maybe it has something to do with the fact I have heard Turku being called “Finland’s Istanbul”. It may surprise you, but there are actually many similarities between these cities. In this post I compare these cities in a positive spirit with pictures. You’ll also get some basic information about both cities and their history.
