) and the old wooden architecture of its centre (Old Rauma, Vanha Rauma), which is a Unesco world heritage site. History In the 14th century, before being declared as a town, Rauma had a Franciscan monastery and a Catholic church. In 1550, the townsmen of Rauma were ordered to relocate (History of Helsinki) to Helsinki, but this was successfully countered and Rauma could continue its growth. Practically the whole wooden town of Rauma was devastated in the fires of 1640 and 1682. The wooden city centre, which is how large the town was until 1809, has approximately 600 wooden buildings. The neo-renaissance style of many of the houses is a result of prosperity brought on by seafaring. In 1897 Rauma had the largest fleet of sailing boats in Finland, totalling 57 vessels. Goods were mainly exported to Germany, Stockholm and the Baltic states. In the 1890s, Rauma got a teacher's college (a 'seminar'), which was later annexed to the University of Turku. A part of the department of education still exists in Rauma. The name ''Rauma'' comes from the Germanic (Germanic languages) word ''strauma'', meaning "stream". http: www.katajala.net keskiaika suomi kaupungit.html Geography Neighborhoods and suburbs Neighborhoods and suburbs of Rauma include: Tarvonsaari, Merirauma, Uusi-Lahti, Kappelinluhta, Paloahde, Haapasaari (Haapasaari, Rauma), Syvärauma, Kinno (Kinno, Rauma), Kaaro, Luostarinkylä, Impivaara, Äyhö, Uotila, Lajo (Lajo, Rauma), Nikulanmäki, Lensunkallio, Nummi (Nummi, Rauma), Pyynpää, Otanlahti, Pidesluoto, Komppi, Lonsi, Polari (Polari, Rauma), Sampaanala, Paroalho, Kourujärvi, Kortela, Monna, Kourujärvi, Kodisjoki, Lappi (Lappi, Finland).
