Satakunta University of Applied Sciences - Rauma

  Situated in the southern part of Satakunta province, Rauma is Finland's third oldest town.  Old Rauma, the largest surviving example of a timber-constructed medieval town in Scandinavia, is a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Rauma is a genuine marine and archipelago town with a lively harbor and three tourist islands (Kylmapihlaja lighthouse island, Kuuskajaskari fort island, and Reksaari nature island).  The city hosts high-class cultural events throughout the year, such as the Rauma Lace Week, which has evolved from the tradition of making bobbin lace.
