Few traditions are as rooted to the Finnish way of life as the sauna experience. This means that while the same swimming hall or sauna is open to both genders, they will not be in the sauna at the same time. Public saunas by the lake tend to be mixed, but everyone wears swimming suits. There is, however, one exception, which you can learn more about here. Thus if you were hoping to find something like in the picture above, keep dreaming.

Pihlajasaari used to be dotted with villas, but it is now an outdoor recreation area. It still has a few old cozy villas nestled amid rocks, wooded areas, and beaches. The area's hilly terrain, convenient location, and available services have made Pihlajasaari one the most popular summer spots in Helsinki. The Seurasaari nude beach is not unisex; it is divided into one section for men and another for women. Seurasaari Island is a public park and also offers a large open-air museum. Note that you can't get nude in all areas of the island, and on certain days, clothing is required. Yyteri Beach , on Finland's west coast, offers sand, sun, surfing, golfing, and volleyball.
Nude Finnish Girls
Nudity in Finnish and Scandinavian saunas self. I've been living in Poland since I was born, it is a catholic and a very non-nude country. In general, nobody sees you naked, exept your parents unless you're older than 12 and your sexual partners. Hearing about Scandinavian and Finnish nudity and spa habits is really shocking for us.
What a fabulous article! We Indians still have a long way to go before we shed our inhibitions about nudity. Thoroughly enjoyed reading about the saunas and learning about the rituals.
