Traveling to sauna of Rajaportti is a moment of relaxation, cleanliness and return back in time. After the sauna moment it's possible to drink cafe or beer in the cafeteria and eat delicious pies.

Very relaxed athmosphere in a traditional setting. No lake for swimming but people cool down outside. Cosy allthough some of the locals might give you few advice on the "sauna rules". But don't mind, they all mean well and add to the experience. :-)

This is one of the oldest public saunas still operating in Finland. The sauna is wood heated which gives a nicer warmth then electric or gas heated saunas. I really liked the löyly (steam) which fills the space slowly when thrown. The sauna is visited...More
