The Sovelius House

Upstairs in the Sovelius House, presumably the oldest preserved building in Raahe, there is a restored home of a shipowner. The home offers an overview of the whole panoply of the wealthy home inhabited by a shipowner and merchant in the 1890s. The exquisite heirloom furniture, abundance of small objects, novelties of the period, ship paintings and traditional house plants take the visitor on a journey back in time to the glory of the Age of Sail. On dark evenings, you may see a candle burning in the window of the master’s room, a sign of everlasting, unhappy love.
During Christmas, starting on Anna’s day on December 9th, the house gets a Christmas outfit with authentic 19th-century Christmas decorations and stories about the traditions of the time of the year that create a Christmas atmosphere. You can even smell the spices used on the season’s bakings.
