Rajaportti sauna - Visit Tampere

Rajaportti sauna

Rajaportti sauna in Pispala, Tampere, built in 1906, is the oldest public sauna in Finland still in use. The Sauna takes you on a time travel to the Finnish sauna culture. The massive masonry stove is the heart of the sauna. Meter-long logs are needed to make the stones glow red. Löyly, the spirit of the sauna, spreads out and lasts for the whole evening. First stern and dry, the löyly gets more gentle, moist and subtle later in the evening. There is space for 15-20 people each side at a time. In the house across the yard there is a cosy café, which is open along with the sauna.
