The Beautiful Town of Rauma

The town of Rauma in western Finland’s Satakunta region was founded in 1442, making it the third oldest town in the country. It is especially known for its colourful regional dialect, its long tradition in bobbin lace-making and the well-preserved wooden buildings of Old Rauma.

Old Rauma, one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, is the largest unified wooden town in the Nordic countries. Approximately 600 people live in the 70-acre area, which contains 600 buildings. Walking around Old Rauma is like stepping into a fairy tale: the colourful wooden houses, decorative gates, cobble stone streets and beautiful public buildings create an atmosphere of the long-forgotten past.
