17:30 Crash Course to Finland part 2: Sauna Excursion

After a rough week, Finns recover and prepare for the weekend by going to a sauna. In the last day of the seminar we provide you an opportunity to visit The Rauhaniemi Public Sauna, just a couple of kilometres from the city centre (Bus number 2 stops nearby). The two saunas in Rauhaniemi are mixed and a swimsuit is required. If you’re into extreme experiences, you can also try ice swimming (As the global warming is emerging, there may be very little ice left at the time of the seminar. We can, however, assure you that the water will be cold enough.)
