Rauma is a town of ca. 42,500 inhabitants on the west coast of Finland, 92 kilometres north of Turku, and 50 kilometres south of Pori. Granted town privileges on May 17, 1442 (then under the rule of Sweden), Rauma is known of its high quality lace (since the 18th century), and of the old wooden architecture of its centre (Old Rauma, Vanha Rauma), which is a Unesco world heritage site. After World War II, Rauma developed into an industrial city, the main industries being shipbuilding, paper and pulp mills, and metal industry. Rauma is also the fifth largest port in Finland with almost six million tonnes of shipping per year. Rauma has its own dialect of Finnish. The dialect inherits words from languages such as Swedish and English due to the seafaring past. The dialect has been diluted into mainstream Finnish in day-to-day use, but it is fairly well studied (mainly by Hj. Nortamo) and practiced as a hobby. Rauma and the surrounding municipality of Rauman maalaiskunta ("rural municipality of Rauma") were merged in 1993, continued in 2007 with the merging of municipality of Kodisjoki.
