Holiday Club Saimaa – honouring history

  • Holiday Club Saimaa is situated in an area with long traditions in hotel and boarding house services.
  • The first hotel and spa centre, Rauha pensionaat for turister, was established in 1894 by property manager Gustav Alm.
  • The Russian doctor Dimitry Gabrilovitsch purchased Rauha in 1912 to convert it into a sanatorium, which would provide a variety of services from various bath treatments to galvanic and bright light therapies.
  • The clinic was quite forward-thinking in its time, as evidenced by the range of dietary and vegetarian foods served there. Visitors came from Russia, Poland, Romania, Prussia and America to enjoy the high-quality services – among them princes and barons with their families, along with numerous businessmen.
  • The Rauha spa building burned down in 1923, after which the area was sold to the hospital district of Viipuri
  • The construction of a new hospital began in 1925, and the building was inaugurated on 22 November 1926. The hospital building was designed by Finnish architects.
  • During World War II, the building served as a military hospital, and between 1946 and 1954 it housed a maternity hospital.
  • The Rauha hospital was permanently closed in 2000.
  • Now, the tradition of hotel and spa services that began over a century ago has finally returned with a diverse range of services.
