In Rauma we have Kirsti house museum from the 1750ies, but in Turku we have a number of such houses in a museum area called Luostarinmäki. This area was untouched by the big fire of Turku in the beginning of 1800ies.
Poroholma camping site beach, Poroholmantie 8, Rauma
Seurakunnan kesäkodin uimaranta (the beach of the parish summer home; the one where kids play at summer time), Kesäkodintie 28, Rauma
But I personally like the Yyteri white sand beach the most! It is a 70km ride towards Pori.
One option is to check where Yyteri Kylpylä address takes you (the upper spot om map), but a better place is positioning your car map til the Yyteri camping site (Yyterinsantojentie 1, 28840 Yyteri) and passing it until there is a parking place at the end of street.
Parking is free, but always full starting from midday. You see a hamburger kiosk and a toilet. But at the beach side is an ice cream bar (to the right) and modern free toilets and a shower to the left. Few changing booths. If you take the right hand sidewalk up the mountain, you pass a small lake before getting to the sea. This might be a better option on a windy day.
According to head coach Pekka Virta he had been building the team for four years with a focus on each player understanding their own role as well as the team’s culture, broadcaster C More reported. The good shape of the players was not a surprise.
“Our game was in good shape after last season, so we were able to invest in team spirit,” Virta said.
The coach spent 27 days in intensive care earlier that year after contracting coronavirus, and missed nearly two months of work in the lead up to the play-off series.
Although gatherings were prohibited due to corona restrictions in town, the town was full of joyful people. Many without a mask on the streets of old Rauma and on the rooftop of Tifosi pub. Bars and pubs were crowded and masks were not worn there either. The doctors of Rauma are worried .
You ask what Rauma men do on Wednesdays or Saturdays (the days before corona was introduced)? They go watch the game or take their kids to play ice hockey.

Kisaranta sauna at Purjehtijankatu 2 http://raumantalviuimarit.net/ 2. Meriristi sauna at Varhontie 14 3. Narvijärvi Puusaun wooden sauna at Ruonantie 319 in Lappi https://www.facebook.com/puusaun/
My favorite places to sledge down the hill is at the so called Lensu hill (near Viherkäine flower shop, if you drive towards the Äyhönjärvi lake). The city’s official sledging hills are located in Pyytjärvi (the parking lot at Metsähdentie) and Lähdepello.
All of the sledge hills of Rauma (according to the kid’s events’ Facebook page ) are 1. There is a big hill next to Lensu’s old school. Parking space on Lensunkalliontie. (on my picture) 2. In Kappelinluhta at the intersection of Hirvitie and Luoteisväylä. No parking spaces. 3. Behind Suvitie street R-kiosk. 4. There is a small hill in the Paroalho playground. 5. There is a small hill in the middle of the Lajo apartment building area 6. There is a big and steep hill at Syvärauma. 7. There is a hill next to the Lotanpello playground (Nallepuisto) in Kappelinluhta 8. Slope next to Lonsi field- Nyberg Park 9. In the ruins of the old Rauma church towards Catherine’s Park 10. A small hill in Sinisaari Park
Please keep an eye on your children. Sometimes snow piles are only for a short time use before tractor comes to remove these. The driver might not see your kids in the snow. They may also drown in a soft hill.
Parking in Rauma is free, but you have to follow the parking rules on how long time you can park. It is either 1 hour, 2 hours or 24 hours. The latter means that you move your car next day.
You can use the parking clock or a piece of paper to mark down the starting time (last spring anything else than a Finnish parking clock was forbidden). And pay attention, you mark only full hours and half hours. If you arrive 13.01, you mark 13.30 as the starting time!
Unfortunately this means getting late to lunch and meetings in order to win half an hour extra parking time 😊 Imagine seeing a friend or feeding 2 small kids at the favorite Wen Jing restaurant in such a hurry in 1 hour. You don’t want to run out to park somewhere else, but changing the clock numbers is also forbidden.
The city also reminds you that a parking sign with a bus or a motorbike picture under P sign means that only such vehicles can park there. And please follow the parking squares painted on the old town streets that refer to the places where parking is allowed.
In Rauma, several parking spaces have a two-hour time limit on weekdays from 8 am to 6 pm and on Saturdays from 8 am to 2 pm. But the 2-hour starts to count in the morning -> for example, if you arrive on a weekday at 5pm, the car can then be parked in the same place overnight until the next morning at 10am.
You have someone shovel your snow. There is an invoice. You can deduct part of these taxes from your tax return.
I want to inform you about the tax deduction of household expenses. This is something we do not have in Estonia and the idea of the Finnish government is to support the official taxation of all services provided, even when done at home.
When you buy services for your home or vacation home, you can deduct part of your expenses in your taxation as a household deduction. You will receive a deduction for routine household, care and maintenance work, maintenance and renovation work, and IT installation and consulting services.
You must apply for the household deduction yourself. Work performed and wages and salaries paid must be declared for tax purposes either online via Omavero.fi or by post, for example on form 14A (household deduction from wages and salaries paid to the enterprise).
The deduction is calculated from the VAT price. The deduction is only given for the share of the work, not for the materials, for example. In 2021, you can deduct as a household deduction 40 per cent of the salary paid to an entrepreneur or company on the prepayment register or 15 per cent of the salary paid and incidental expenses.
The maximum amount of the household deduction in 2021 (as in 2020) is EUR 2,250 per. The amount may consist solely of household, renovation or IT work, or all of these. The reduction is accompanied by an annual deductible of EUR 100.
In 2021, you will receive the maximum reduction, ie a reduction of EUR 2,250, if the total amount of work in the services you purchase from the company is EUR 5,875 [(5,875 x 40%) – 100) = EUR 2,250].
The deduction is granted to the spouses as they request it. If the limit of € 2,250 is not exceeded, the deduction should only be requested for the other spouse. In this way, the deductible is reduced only once. If the amount claimed for deduction exceeds the maximum, the authority will automatically deduct the amount not deducted from the other spouse’s taxes. Spouses can receive a total of € 4,500 in deductions. If there is only one tax, the deduction can be made from the taxes of the person who has them. Source
The household work that is usually deducted is: • cleaning • shopping • cooking • lawn mowing • snow cleaning • home party catering
However, interior design or emptying a dirt well are not work that qualifies for a deduction.
You can deduct from care and nursing work that is done at home, such as caring for children or the elderly at home. Hairdresser, manicure and other beauty services are not considered to be normal nursing and care work at home.
Maintenance and renovation work that qualifies for a household deduction • renovation of the kitchen, bathroom or other rooms, • renovation of sauna and basement facilities, • painting buildings, • installation of balcony glass, • plumbing and electrical work as well, • renewal, improvement and repair of heating systems.
A household deduction can also be obtained for maintenance of the boiler oil bulb, cleaning of the boiler, efficiency measurement of the boiler and cleaning, measuring, adjusting and maintenance of ventilation equipment. However, no deduction can be made for „chimney cleaning“.
The installation and repair of household appliances and equipment, such as refrigeration appliances or dishwashers, is not considered deductible maintenance work, unless it is carried out in connection with major repairs.
Information technology advisory and installation services entitling to a household deduction include: • installing and repairing a digital device or antenna, • installing and repairing your computer, • setting up telecommunications connections, • installation of security services, purchased software and purchased, updates on the IT equipment, • guidance work on home information and communication equipment and connections (if it takes place at home).
The installation work of the alarm and security system is now subject to a household deduction. The surveillance system can be installed both at home or in a holiday home. No household deduction for maintenance and other service charges for alarm and security systems.
