What are we going to do

Which is the most haunted street of Old Rauma? Who is climbing the creaking steps of Rauma Art Museum after closing? Which one of the past fireguards, 'prännvaht', keeps walking along the streets of Old Rauma knocking the windows at night?

As one of the oldest medieval towns in Finland, Rauma has a long and unhappy history of disastrous fires, deadly diseases and devastating destinies. Wouldn't it be strange if some of the previous inhabitants of Old Rauma were not still wandering somewhere between reality and the world beyond? During the Old Rauma Ghost Walk, you'll learn what the wooden houses of this Unesco-listed old town truly hide inside their walls.

Based on the real experiences shared by the current and previous residents of Old Rauma, the 1-hour ghost tour reveals the untold stories that can't be found in any travel guides or history books.

On this ghost walk, we'll explore the secret courtyards, the rambling cobblestone streets and the dark footpaths of Old Rauma. Make sure to wear good, flat shoes, dress up according to the weather and take plenty of courage with you – and feel free to wish your night sleep a farewell.

You'll be led to the darker side of Rauma by an authorised tour guide. She spent months collecting local stories about inhabitants who should have left the streets of Rauma behind years, if not centuries, ago.

Please note that the age limit for the tour is 12 years.

About Saana - the Doer

Boo! I'm your local guide, Saana – a professional storyteller and Rauma guide passionate about exploring the unknown.

I started investigating the darker side of Rauma during the guide course taking place in 2018-2019. I couldn't believe a medieval town like Rauma, that has suffered from several severe fires and epidemics, didn't have any ghost stories to tell.

Very soon, I found out that it did. After talking to a dozen locals, the stories kept feeding themselves. Every person who had scary experiences while living in Old Rauma was able to name the next person with new, creepy stories with no logical explanation.

This is how the Old Rauma Ghost Tour was born. All stories are based on real experiences shared by the current and previous residents of Old Rauma; The untold stories that can't be found in any travel guides or history books.

Iso kiitos Saana! Pikkujouluporukkamme tykkäsi todella paljon! 15 minuutin kootut kummitustarinasi (netin yli) höystettynä spektaakkelimaisella heittäytymiselläsi oli upea kokemus. Tämä toimi virtuaalisenakin aivan mahtavasti!
Saana Saana Karmivan iso kiitos palautteesta, Tomi. Kamalan kiva kuulla, että "minikierros" toimi myös etäyhteydellä, vaikka tarinointi taisikin olla melko heiluvaista ilman kuvausapuria. 😁

Very nice tour around Old Rauma. Guide was very good. The only small wish, next time more dark places to stay on the ghost surroundings.
Saana Saana Thank you for the feedback, Minna. The challenge with Christmas time is that Old Rauma is decorated with Christmas lights, so there are fewer dark corners compared to normal. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour anyway. 👻

Saana Saana Kiitos palautteesta, Riitta. Hirrrrvittävän hienoa kuulla, että pidit kierroksesta. 👻

Kiitos Saana! Todella uskottava muodonmuutos toimittajasta kummitukseksi. Hienoa eläytymistä. Pienet äänitehosteet tihensivät tunnelmaa, niitä olisi voinut olla muutama enemmänkin. Suosittelen lämpimästi.
Saana Saana Karmivan iso kiitos järkyttävän hyvälle tuulelle saavasta palautteesta, Irmeli. Vanhan Rauman kummituskierroksella kuullaan ainoastaan tositarinoita, ja siksi koko kierros on tarkoituksella mahdollisimman autenttinen. Vanha Rauma pitää kyllä huolen tunnelmasta ja tehosteista, kunhan osallistujat malttavat olla tarkkana ja avoimina entisten asukkaiden läsnäololle. Näitä kokemuksia voi lueskella myös osallistujien jättämistä palautteista... jos uskaltaa. 👻
