The event area is in the heart of Turku, only 2,5 km away from the ferry harbour, There are a lot of zones in the centre, ones you don't have anywhere else. Or what do you say about a zone that can only be taken from a little ferry that goes across the river, free of charge of course! On the map it is a grey pin called Föri.
