Vappu is coming!

The First of May or "Vappu" is the Finnish version of Labour Day that we celebrate to honour working people. It is also the biggest student festival of the year, bringing together tens of thousands of students and other citizens of Turku. On April 30th we gather at Turku Art Museum to listen to music and speeches and put on the students caps (ylioppilaslakki) all at once. On May 1st there is a picnic on Vartiovuorenmäki where we enjoy celebrating the spring by listening the good music, eating traditional Vappu meal and drinking some sparkling wine in the park. >> Read more

Nyt on kevät
Now is spring

Lumi sulaa
Snow is melting

Linnut laulavat
Birds are singing

Aurinko laskee myöhään ja nousee aikaisin
Sun sets late and rises early

Ihanaa, kun ei ole enää kylmä
It is lovely that it is not cold anymore

Oletko ollut kävelyllä jokirannassa?Have you been walking by the river?

Oletko syönyt jo jäätelöä?
Have you eaten ice cream yet?

Hyvää kevään jatkoa
Have a nice spring
