Spend an unforgettable night aboard a museum ship! The charm and milieu of a nostalgic cruise ship.
Turku locals are familiar with ‘Nolla-Bore’ (Zero-Bore) also known as the S/S Bore since it was completed in 1960 in Oskarshamn in Sweden. Today the location of the museum ship and the hostel operating within is found moored to the Aura riverside in the foreground of Forum Marinum, an ideal spot from where hostel guests can easily explore the harbour area on foot.

The quality of the water in Turku is excellent
Did you know that the domestic water we deliver fulfils all of the quality requirements and recommendations issued by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health with ease?* The water flowing from your tap is artificial groundwater produced at Virttaankangas. The quality of our domestic water remains constant for all of the parameters examined throughout the year, and the water we lead into the network remains nice and cool even in summer.
This is the route of the water
The water flowing from your tap comes from the Kokemäenjoki river. From the river, the water is pumped into the pre-treatment plant of Turun Seudun Vesi Oy, where all solid matter, such as clay, is removed from the water. This process also removes 99% of all pathogens. The murky river water is transformed, and as it leaves the plant, it is clear. From there, it starts a 30-kilometre trip towards the Virttaankangas ridge.
