Create an itinerary including Old Rauma
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.

  • First time in Rauma. Very nice and cosy old centre with wooden houses. Nice buildings. The centre is protected by Unesco world heritage.

  • Rauma is a charming little city from the 17th century. The streets with wooden houses with unique architecture are still a center of attraction and are on the UNESCO world heritage list. According to a rumor, this lady I'm sitting next to was planted here every day waiting for her boyfriend, and eventually identified with this place and her statue was made. Just kidding, I wish you a happy Sunday,
  • Traditional houses are the most prominent attraction. One has to be curious about local history and traditions to really enjoy this place.
  • A really beautiful old town in Finland. Traditional buildings and beautiful detailed streets.
  • Wonderful architecture and history, plenty to see and do. Recommend a visit!
  • Beautiful old town. Really a place to be in Finland. Love it
