Secrets of the Culture Sauna

There is a secret place in Helsinki, a place that doesn’t want any publicity. The place is called Culture Sauna and it is one of the very few public saunas in Helsinki, located in Hakaniemenranta. The project was a part of Helsinki World Design Capital year, but at the end the sauna was opened to public in spring 2013. Finnish-Japanese couple Nene Tsuboi and Tuomas Toivonen have designed the sauna together and the simple and functional outlook combines beautifully the two cultures.

I visited the sauna together with three friends, and we were lucky enough to be let in even though they have “limited access to groups” (I didn’t realize that four people would be considered as a group). When you enter to the building you must take your shoes off together with your camera. So the only way to see the simple but pretty interiors and the stunning view from the sauna room is to visit the place yourself. It was truly relaxing experience that I recommend to everyone! And for the brave ones, there is even a possibility to dip in the sea – also during the winter season.
