Sauna is almost everywhere. For most Finns going to sauna is a tradition, and a moment of relaxation.
Finns follow the inherited sauna practices in their own traditions. The saunas are of every size and shape, depending on the space, and whether the sauna is in the city, or in the countryside at a summer resort. And most of the urban saunas are rapidly heated up by electricity.
In Helsinki, there are a number of contemporary saunas, from public saunas with swimming pools to private saunas to be rented.
The modern sauna is also designed more and more to offer surroundings for a relaxing sauna time. The sauna of today also has more of spa ambience than ever.
