Nationalities in Rauma

According to Tilastokeskus there are over 2200 foreigners in Rauma (as of 2018) in a town of almost 40 000 inhabitants.


Most of the foreigners are building the third nuclear power plant in Eurajoki. Many are working as subcontractors at the Rauma Marine Construction and other industrial sites.

People from Poland, Estonia, France, Turkey, Latvia, China, Bulgaria and Germany are most represented countries in Rauma. And Africans in general.

I have no idea what the former Soviet Union means in this table, cause it is not Estonia 🙂

Which country are you from and do you regularly meet people of your nationality?

We have the Estonian club in Laitila each Saturday. Originally it was meant for kids to speak in their language and play, while moms were having coffee. Now we have a more variable program. We plan to start teaching kids Estonian language.
