1. Dear Abhinav,

Thank you for your e-mail and your interest in Old Rauma!


Old Rauma is a unique example of an old Nordic wooden town, where living, working and social life come together in the area spanning almost 30 hectares. Of the about 600 buildings, most houses are privately owned, but the narrow streets are still filled with small boutiques, cafés, ateliers and museums. In the museums of Old Rauma a visitor can explore the history and the way of living in Rauma over the centuries. The Holy Cross Church, a medieval church right by the Old Rauma area, represents one of the oldest buildings in the area. Old Rauma is full of interesting details, for example the narrowest known street in Finland, Kitukränn, is situated in the heart of Old Rauma.

In our personal opinion Old Rauma, though being a historical site, is a lively, idyllic and cosy city centre. Old Rauma welcomes all visitors to feel the unique atmosphere of this historical city centre, all year round.


Greetings from sunny Rauma!

Best wishes,

Katja Siivonen
