Forum Sauna was established in 1926. At that time, the location was Yliopistonkatu 15, which had large sauna facilities with separate sections for men and women. Our family has owned the sauna since 1965. Then my father, Kalevi Salminen, bought the sauna together with his aunt Helmi Saari and her husband Eino Saari.
Forum Sauna ceased its operations at Yliopistonkatu in 1981. After that, we renovated the facilities of the Kurjenmäki spa, whose sauna building had been constructed in 1941. Forum Sauna reopened its doors at this Kurjenmäki spa location in 1981. Eino and Helmi Saari stopped running the sauna in 1988, and since then, Forum Sauna has been under my ownership.
Thus, the sauna is now run by the second generation, and it continues to operate both as a public sauna and a therapeutic sauna. It embraces new challenges and operational models while honoring the traditions, appearance, and spirit of old-time public saunas. The sauna stoves are oil-heated, and renovations have been made in the sauna steam rooms in recent years; both the benches and the walls have been tiled.
