Old Raahe

When Raahe received a new town plan after the fire in 1810, the town’s bourgeoisie, merchants and sailors built their houses in accordance with the style ideals of the time. We still have a magnificent, well-preserved wooden town area from the 19th century full of stories from the Age of Sail. Come and see!
