Sauna on the lake

Posted by
ursulakatariina (Turku, Finland) on 18 June 2013 in Architecture.

On the Lake Lilla Le there is this floating sauna. If I was like the rest of the Finns I would go there at least once a week to bake myself but as I am not like the rest of them I'll never go in there.

Happy ST!

Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

Please read this.

Do they jump in the lake to cool off? I think we need you to demonstrate :)

@Christine: I have never seen anybody there yet, but I guess they do cool off in the lake.
I'm not gonna demonstrate! :)

Lovely poetic capture of this sauna - " different Ursula." :-))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

@Devi: Thank you!

Jypyä Pop from Turku, Finland

You are right. The sauna must go only when she wants. Otherwise, it is unhealthy.

@Jypyä Pop: Yep, it's a terrible place to be if you don't feel like it.

A little floating hothouse - quite a find!

@Curly: These are quite common in this part of the world so I wasn't very surprised to see one here.

Oiva from Turku, Finland

Wonderful, I would go for sure if I get there to visit, I have not been in the sauna 3 years, but I would like at that! :-))Haleja.

Happy ST for both of you!

@Oiva: We'll have to try to organise a nice evening in the sauna for you when you come here.

cool the small house boat

@keyouest: It's actually a floating sauna, not a house boat. But it's cool anyway! :)

I once had to do some business with the Finns naked in a Sauna-weird, very weird!

@CElliottUK: I am very sorry that you have had to go through that. I hope they didn't hit you with a 'vihta'...

It looks so small! A great capture in a lovely surrounding. I am with you, I would not want to try it.

18 Jun 2013 4:49pm

@Ruthiebear: It is actually quite small, one of the smallest saunas I've ever seen.
Thank you!

Saa ainakin olla rauhassa :)

@Ari: No juu, ei ihan helpolla pääse kukaan häiritsemään. :)
