They are professional sauna competitor: Markku Santtu and Reijo. When looking close one can notice that skin has got thicker. To protect itself. I could not bear no more than few minutes in a sauna with these guys. Imatra 2011.
In Muurame Finland there is a place called Saunakylä. The widest collection of different types of Finnish saunas. Sadly, most of them are rotten and the place looks like ISIS style folklore conservation rather than a place where fins are nurturing their most unique tradition. This unconventionally small smoke sauna was built in the beginning 1900-century in Kempele.
