What are we going to do

Why did the town form at the mouth of the strait (=rauma)? How did the river become the channel? Where were Aittakari, Pususilta and Kiikartorni located and what were they like? How has the harbor changed over the centuries? Come to the walk of stories through Rauma's 581-year history! We walk along the Rauma Canal to the mouth of the harbor. The length of the route is about 2 km.
Let's start in front of Rauma City Hall, Kanalinranta 3.

It's great that you are interested in history and current affairs!
You can order walking tours with different themes from me: Let's walk through the history in Old Rauma: When, how and where people were born, attended school, learned a profession, built, inhabited, loaded ships, celebrated, fell ill, died and survived as stories. Experiential time travel in which truth and stories bring the sounds, smells and moods of the streets and houses to life.

Kirsi Kirsi Kiitos Mari, niiin kiva kuulla tällaista palautetta. Raumalaisilta opas saa usein itsekin uusia näkökulmia ja tietoa.


Kiva kierros ja mielenkiintoisia yksityiskohtia!

Erittäin mielenkiintoinen kierros ja asiantunteva opas. Sisälsi valtavasti uutta tietoa myös tällaiselle "paljasjalkaiselle" raumalaisellekin. Suosittelen lämpimästi!
