Pispala Sauna Association Address: Pispalan valtatie 9 FI-33250 Tampere FINLAND Email: saunayhdistys [ät] rajaportti.fi
The sauna block at Rajaportti in Pispala was built by Hermanni Lahtinen and his wife Maria in the beginning of the 20th century. The main building with a bakery and a shop was erected first, then followed by a smaller cottage, the sauna and a so called “taylor’s house”.
Today, the Rajaportti block belongs to the city of Tampere. Since 1989 the Pispala sauna association has been responsible for activities at Rajaportti and for maintenance of the premises. Thanks to the energy of the association, the sauna at Rajaportti is the oldest public sauna in Finland still going strong! At the turn of the millenium, a Sauna café was included and premises for a masseur was provided.
The Pispala sauna association wellcomes all sauna loving people to take a bath with us and enjoy their stay at Rajaportti. Furthermore, we hope that new generations yet to come will find their way to the public saunas and this way keep the genuine sauna culture forever alive!
