Rauma 580-year anniversary
Rauma celebrated its 580th anniversary in 2022. Rauma was founded on the 17th of April 1442 when knight Karl Knutsson, who later became King Charles VIII of Sweden and Norway, signed the first town privilege charters for Rauma. Rauma is the third oldest city in Finland.
The original charters remain to this day and were on display to the public in the Old Town Hall in April 2022.
