Rauma, have you ever heard of this little town in western Finland? Neither had I before I went there. But I can assure you, it’s well worth a visit!
The old town of Rauma is on the due to the many quaint old wooden houses on narrow cobblestone streets. Wooden houses were the thing of the past in Scandinavia, but wild fires and an urge to modernize meant that many of them disappeared. Few places have so many beautiful old wooden houses intact as Rauma does.
