There are really two Old Raumas: a couple of bustling streets off the main market square, lined with restaurants, cafes and shops that wouldn't be out of place in any town centre; and a maze of smaller streets and alleyways, which are almost exclusively residential...More
The old Rauma is very nice and we loved wandering in the streets, looking at all the houses.
The houses are very colourful and every one of them is different.
It is very very quiet though, and even though August was far from over it...More
Beautiful old town with typical wooden houses with different architectures and colors.
It was very busy on the day I visited due to a special festival and parking was difficult, but it still was lovely to stroll around to appreciate the houses.
Very nice old town. Lovely wooden houses with open back yards (at least some have). Quite many houses have a yard sale in their back yard. You can just wander around and look at the houses and have a coffee/drinks in a cafe. Best time...More
If you are interested in old towns then this is a must. A substantial area of old wooden buildings. Many are quite ordinary but some are very stylish. Overall a lovely area to wander around (with a camera maybe)
This portion of the city is a UNESCO heritage site because of the wooden construction of the buildings. Yes it is attractive but not in any way extraordinary. Certainly if you are in Rauma area you should stroll along the streets and do some shoppting.

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 river and there is plenty of lovely sights, shops and restaurants. On summer you can take a boat from Helsinki to Porvoo but I don't know If there are trips already on March. Porvoo is smaller than Rauma but I am sure you will love it!
