"Pooki flakka! Now pooki flakka!"

This is what was heard on a misty summer's day in the small town of Raahe, from the bell tower or wherever the sound first came from. And a great hum went through the whole town.

- Pooki flakka... pooki flakka... pooki flakka! joyfully darted from street to street, flew through the open window and leapt over the fence from one yard to the other. Like the spirit of a great joyous feast, the whole town, including Katinhänt, Nätterpor, and Paavonperän Hill, breathed in. The people rushed into the streets, ran to the beach:

- Flakkaako pooki?"

Extract from the work Wanha Raahe (1925), Samuli Paulaharju

When you step into the sauna of this historic farmhouse, you'll step back in time to the 19th century. The large log-walled sauna is heated by wood. The boards are aspen and hand-carved in place by carpenters.

 

SHOP

Our shop shelves are stocked with treasures from shipwrecks in distant lands and the skilful work of local cobblers. Our range is based on the 1870 Lang sailing ship's cargo book and we import small batches of delicacies and other products from the same port towns as the merchant sailing ships of yore!

Of course, the shop also offers local products from books to handicrafts. We want to showcase small producers and handicrafts. The Hantvärkkers played an important role in the life of the maritime town as early as the 19th century.
