Föri - City Ferry, Turku, Finland
A truly unique city ferry crosses the Aura River, taking passengers from Turku to Åbo and back again. Föri (comes from the Swedish word färja) is a light traffic ferry that has served the Aura River for over a hundred years. It first took passengers in 1904. Since then it has been beloved by Turku citizens.
Föri takes passengers between Tervahovinkatu (East bank) and Wechterinkuja (West bank). Its route starts about 500 metres after the last bridge heading toward the mouth of the river. There the little orange ferry runs nonstop back and forth across the Aura River.
Some of the River//Cities Platform Foundation members had an opportunity to take a crossing by Fori during the meeting in Turku within “Rivers of Opportunities” project.
It is one the city’s main attractions and it is free!
