An UNESCO heritage site, a suprisingly large entity of old wooden buildings. Resembles Porvoo old town, but this place appears larger. Quiet alleys. A number of shops, some a bit bizarre with Impressions of how things likely were in the 1940s to 1970s Finland.

Took the tourist information website download walking tour, even though it was very icy in place I really enjoyed the self-guided tour. Even though it was a sunday there were a few place open and some lovely tea shops!

Very nice place to contemplate and take a look at the old houses and structures. Very clean and well maintained. This quiet neighbourhood seems to be stopped in time. Definitively worth a visit while in Rauma.

Very lovely place, especially during Christmas time with all the decorations. Many souvenir and gift shops, interesting decorations and crowded with people - a good place where to go during December evenings!

People are warned that cars are not allowed in Old Rauma. That is not true, because people live in those old wooden houses and run businesses there, so we saw plenty of cars all over the place. Nevertheless, we parked at a shopping centre close...More

Old Rauma is extremely picturesque. It is full of wooden houses, narrow streets with cobblestone surfaces and charming cafeterias or restaurants. Remember to visit at least Old Town Hall Museum, Shipowner's Home Museum Marela, Seaman's Home Museum Kirsti, Rauma Art Museum and Ruins of the...More

Hello Helena! Thanks for asking! I would recommend you to visit Porvoo which is much closer to Helsinki. Rauma is too far away for a one day trip. Porvoo is also a very famous and beautiful wooden and old town. It lies by... More
