We all know Finland as the land of thousands of lakes, clean air and green forests, but there is much more to Finland than pure nature, as amazing as it is! Join us on our tour to visit 7 northern wonders: Finnish World Heritage Sites!
1. Walk along the cobblestone streets of Old Rauma
Rauma is a beautiful town located on the South-West Coast of Finland. The most unique part and the heart of the town is the old town, Old Rauma, with its’ colourful wooden houses, little boutiques and narrow cobblestone streets.
Being the largest coherent wooden town area in the whole of the Nordic Region, Old Rauma was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991. Here you can feel the gentle touch of history while enjoying a cup of coffee or a pint of beer on one of the many summer terraces, or while shopping for local handcrafts; Rauma is famous for its’ lace and its’ very own language that no one – not even Finnish people outside of the Rauma area – can understand.
