If you visit in winter, the cobblestones may be icy. Wear good winter shoes so you don't slip.
A visit to Rauma is great any time of year. The Lace Festival is held in the summer, so if that interests you, plan your visit accordingly. The farmers market is held on Saturdays in the center of Old Rauma and is a really great one to check out.
Winter and summer are great times to visit. Vanha Rauma is usually a quiet town with not many visitors, so you'll feel like you are exploring somewhere off the beaten path. Go early in the morning and you'll have the place to yourself.
If you love historical buildings and colorful architecture, with a splash of kid-friendly fun, Vanha Rauma (Old Rauma) is for you. With over 600 perfectly preserved, wooden buildings that are still occupied and in use, there’s much to see. Embark on a wonderful walking tour in this quaint, historical Finnish town. Begin the journey at Kontion Kahvilat (Café Kontio), which is a teddy bear-themed café. Grab a cup of traditional Finnish coffee while the little ones cosy up to some comfy teddy bears. Then, hit the streets to take in the museums. Or, shop amongst the numerous boutiques featuring local and handmade trinkets. Also, don’t forget to check out Old Rauma’s famous lace. The old town is great for families, as the kids love running ahead on the deserted streets to explore the alleys.
