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 .

I only met nice Finns. The young ladies at the checkout at LIDL spoke German very well. When asked where this was learned "Goethe Institute" A Finnish neighbour proudly showed me his fishing luck and suddenly spoke to me in German. Finland, like all Scandinavian countries, is a very beautiful country with pleasant people and characteristics. It is very nice both in summer and winter. In short, it's worth a trip. The question "When were you here?" should also include only annual figures.
Estive por alguns dias por lá e me encantei com o lugar, estávamos no outono então a cidade estava toda forrada por folhas e um visual encantador. more »I was there for a few days and i was charmed by the place, we were in the fall so the whole town was lined with leaves and a charming look.
