Relax in the sauna after a long day

Finnish love for sauna

On the one hand, sauna is a place for conversations and debates. On the other hand, people retreat to sauna for a quiet, relaxing time with their own thoughts as the only company.

Even if the temperature in sauna can reach one hundred degrees Celsius, bathing is pleasant. After sauna you feel relaxed and enjoy a good quality of sleep.

People bathe in sauna naked. Men and women bathe in sauna separately. At first it might feel odd to be without clothes, but you get used to it quickly.

The Unihome properties in Töölö Towers and Unihome Students aprovide a chance to experience the Finnish sauna. Please see the houses’ notice boards for more information about sauna.
