"If you want to visit..." Tampere Off The Beaten Path Tip by einokj

Tampere Off The Beaten Path: 26 reviews and 16 photos

If you want to visit old-traditional finnish public sauna culture, go to Rauhaniemi. It is north-east from the city centre, close to Lapinniemi. There you can go swimming throughout the year (even in winter) with sauna. There are old people who spend quite a lot of their time in sauna. If you go there then you'll know how should the real sauna be. When I was there last time, the thermometer was +130 C and they were throwing water all the time. Try it!
