The University of Turku was established in 1920. Funded with a public fundraising, the University of Turku was the first Finnish-language university in the world. However, the roots of academic traditions go back to the 13th century, when people left Turku for Central Europe to study at university. Initiated by Queen Christina of Sweden, the country’s first university, the Royal Academy of Turku, was established in Turku in 1640.
