Old Rauma, Rauma
(4.4/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Perhaps one of the best things to do in this recesses of the West of Finland. Rauma preserves intact much of the old town where there are still several hundred wooden of the s. XVIII and XIX. Walk is by their streets cobbled allows make is an idea quite accurate of as were the cities Finnish coastal makes more than one century, especially these cities located in the West and with a very strong influence Swedish. Apart from walking, there is little else to do. The majority of houses are still used as residences, although a good number, especially the closer to the city have been converted into shops and cafes. It is worth approaching up to the old cemetery, where are the ruins of the old church and you can see tombstones of the s. XVIII. perhaps some panels telling the history of the district, some of the most unique homes or the oldest families in the area would be a good idea to improve the tourist visit.

  • The visitor might want to book a time to explore, because the old Rauma proper amenities and idyllic landscape is so much. A must to see-a visit to the Church of the Holy Cross, are the medieval old town hall dates back to 1776, nail the top of the Hill and the Stone of the peninsula as well as at the Museum at the end of the 1800-Marela.

  • Beautiful place when snow has fallen upon the town and Christmas lights are on! In summer time, it is very nice to walk late on the streets and explore, when it's warm.

  • 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.
