    Sauna facts

    by TarjaH Updated Sep 13, 2011

    Sauna is ready when the heat is about 80 degrees Celsius. (For some Finns like my grandfather it is 100 degrees)

    Bathers are nude in Finnish saunas (but I don't mind if someone wants to wear towel)

    During sauna session lose about 300 cal, which is about 30min of exercising

    Old days babies were born in a sauna and dead were bathed in the sauna.

    All Finns have it, almost all of us love it!

    A cottage next to a lake

    by TarjaH Written Feb 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We Finns love spending time on our summer cottages.
    Thanks to our thousands lakes we have chance to have those cottages located next to the lakes.
    If asked me, the best cottages are those which does not have electricity but if you think it's too extreme, you can find cottages with all conveniences.
    What makes it special?
    Think about it;
    calm lake, quiet nature, light and warmth of fire..
    and those are only a few things that makes our nightless summer nights special.
