Old Rauma, Rauma

4.5
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. To visit Old Rauma and other attractions in Rauma, use our Rauma trip itinerary maker site .

  • Old Rauma is extremely picturesque. It is full of wooden houses, narrow streets with cobblestone surfaces and charming cafeterias or restaurants. Remember to visit at least Old Town Hall Museum, Shipo...  more »
  • Many wooden houses are in the old part of the city and it is alive. On one of the pedestrian area, there were many small stores. Clearly interesting to been there.

  • 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 only thing which attracts me to Rauma is the black lace weekend, but thanks non professional arrangements on part of organizer this event is in downward trend. Squeezing spaces, littered toilets, reduce numbers of toilets for public, rude security staff, sky high prices in international market, limited parking space are free of the problems increasing every year, and I am surprise how they are ignored for cash hungry event organisers.
  • Lovely place with all the old wooden houses and amazing restaurants. The only downside is that nothing is open on Sundays so the weekend is not the best time for a visit.
  • One of the most beautiful small cities in Finland. A good place at summer time.
  • Its so historical, the street structure are magnificent; laid in patterns with cut rocks and stones the driveways are so narrow (oneway).Wooden connected buildings. Old Rauma has many small shops and cafe's. Its a good place to explore,discover and see many people, the place is lite. In the centre or heart of old Rauma is always an open market on weekends.
  • Interesting and beautiful architectory. Lovely athmosphere.
