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 .

In addition to the old town, I also recommend an unfriend or an old home for the Voiluotoa. In addition to the beautiful urban landscape, you can also find the beautiful and Oikke age-old rustic country. Raum o oikke Beautiful ensemble, Varsinkki historiast interesting.
I loved the place, very unique and it has an antique atmosphere. Also a very quite place. Simply enjoyable!!
The old town is lovely. Very rarely in Finland the old wooden buildings have been kept in such good condition. In Rauma' s old town most of old wooden houses are still lived in.
