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 .

  • Here is a nice walking in good weather. Beautiful old wooden houses, which are not, in many places in Finland. Cafés and restaurants can be found in the area.

  • Very nice place to contemplate and take a look at the old houses and structures. Very clean and well maintained. This quiet neighbourhood seems to be stopped in time. Definitively worth a visit while ...  more »
  • The charming and unique wooden house in the city, which is in the summer, in particular, the lace in the weeks full of events. UNESCO World Heritage site with history, museums, and art, but also cafes and restaurants, as well as plenty of opportunities for shopping. Also, an organic grocery! An atmospheric place, even if just for a walk.

  • World heritage spot that is situated in the town. Very nice little old buildings with nice shops, cafés and restaurants. Also mostly (sadly) during the summer you can find bands performing in some of the inside yards.
  • The rows of low, colourful buildings serve as a wonderful backdrop for photos. Many great cafes in the area.
  • World heritage - worth visiting. Any time of year.
  • a city center in the Middle Ages, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, good cafes and eateries.
  • A historical place to visit, with great traditional Finnish building and great stores providing souvenirs.
