Hirvensalo is an island in the Archipelago Sea, belonging to the city of Turku, Finland. It is divided into 14 districts, the largest ones being Moikoinen, Kukola and Haarla. Most of the island's economic activity is concentrated on the suburb of Moikoinen, which has a school, shops, a Lutheran church, and a post office. The island's total population is 6,547 (as of 2004).
Hirvensalo was formerly part of the municipality of Maaria, until it was annexed to the city of Turku in 1944.
This pretty card sent to me by Pia shows a few sights of Hirvensalo. Lets start with the top, which shows a view towards the Aristo Sea. The ships you see are of the Silja and Viking lines going from Turku to Stockholm. The next is the popular Skiing Centre on Hirvensalo. The two lower pictures are of the local church there and the other is where the artist Aaltonen the Finnish artist and sculptor lived.
