Finland has 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, but only two of them get regularly visited by tourists: the Fortress of Suomenlinna outside Helsinki and the wooden houses of Old Rauma. The other sites are off any usual visitor's route except for the Burial Site of...More
Well sited in the forest, there's several cairns you can walk around (stay on paths). Feels very primordial and untouched. Nice activity close to Rauma, you need a car to access. There's an information board in English and Finnish in the parking lot.
My first visit to the World Heritage Site of Sammallahdenmaki. A very historical place with marks from the people living in the area in the Bronze Age (about 1000 years BC). It's recommended to join a guided tour.
