Silversea Luxury Cruises A Rauma

This pretty seaside town has more than an element of chocolate box to it. Narrow cobbled streets flanked by painted wooden cottages and overflowing flower boxes may seem a little twee to the urbanite, but once you let yourself be charmed by its olde-world fairy-tale magic, you will soon fall in love. Rauma also has the happy label of being the largest unified wooden town in the Nordic countries, and has a UNESCO World Heritage badge of honour to prove it. View more

It is also close to 580 years old, making it almost 500 years older than its host country, Finland and the third oldest town in Finland. And yet, over five centuries of history is not the jewel in Rauma’s crown, rather the lace-making festival that happens every summer. People flock from far and wide to take on the resident lace-making champion in a series of “lace-battles” that involve speed, precision and of course bobbins. Historical sources reveal that bobbin lace-making in Rauma goes back all the way to the 1740s. Initially, Lace Week was a set of exhibitions during which skilled bobbin lace-makers could display their works, but it has since developed into a wide-ranging communal event, with music, dance and traditional cooking.
