I visited the sauna on midsummer weekend. I assume this was a very busy time, yet very much enjoyed my stay and the beautiful minimalist decor. A dip in the sea was also very refreshing. The staff is very friendly.

Kulttuuri sauna is run by an American man and his Asian wife. It's a little pricey at 15 Euros (less for seniors, students, and the unemployed) and unless you bring your own towel, an additional 4 Euros to rent one. They give you a small...More
