Old Rauma, Rauma

4.5
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Rauma
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Named a World Heritage Site because of its traditional Nordic architecture, Old Rauma features some 600 buildings, from humble sheds to homes and churches, all made of wood. Along the town's narrow, winding roads you'll see buildings that date back to the 17th century, some of them housing shops and businesses, others belonging to families. Visit the homes of seamen (and women) that have become museums. You can peer into 200 wooden shops and see a 15th-century church adorned with vibrant medieval paintings. The site encompasses 29 hectares (72 acres), so wear good walking shoes to cover lots of ground. Add Old Rauma and other attractions to your Rauma trip itinerary using our Rauma tour planner.

  • The old town is lovely. Reminds me of Porvoo but bigger. Some nice old shops too. Gorgeous little bookshop that reminded me of a certain shop in Dunkeld  more »
  • The historic centre of Rauma maintains the classic constructions in buildings, it makes t return to the past. You can also find shops & places to eat

  • On a sunny day it was nice to stroll around and admire the old buildings. Many of them are flea markets, etc. "Sign was the car dodging and some seemed to be still in a great rush, the momentum was enough.
