The functionalist station

The Turku station was opened in 1876. The construction of the current station building, which represents functionalist architectural design, was completed in 1940. It was built for the Helsinki Summer Olympics in 1952 because it was believed that the majority of tourists would arrive from the Port of Turku.

Significant cultural environment

There are a lot of buildings from the late 19th century in the area surrounding the station. The Finnish Heritage Agency has classified the area around the Turku Central railway station as a nationally significant built cultural environment.
