There are two public mixed saunas at Kuuma. The bigger one is the smoke sauna and the smaller of our saunas is a traditional wood-heated sauna.

So, remember to bring your swimsuit with you – should you forget or for other reasons need to rent swimming gear, that’s also possible with 3 euros per person.
