Old Rauma, Rauma
(4.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful old town with all the wooden structures that they still preserved it well. Definitely worth to visit this old Rauma town
  • Wonderfull place to visit. Shops, Cafe's, old buildings etc. Everywhere. Next to Center of Rauma.
  • Absolutely beautiful! Looking forward for the next time.
  • The feel in this part of town in the summer is like being in Italy or Spain. Love it!
  • The old Rauma with its quaint wooden houses is a lovely place to visit. This living and breathing Unesco World Heritage site has local shops and restaurants, beautiful wooden architecture and a church dating back to the 16th century.
