Or “welcome” in Finnish.

In a nondescript old building in Quincy is the strangest little place: the Finland Steam Baths. It’s been in operation since the 1920s.  Think sauna with steam, with a temperature hovering around 130 degrees. It’s exactly where you want to be when a blizzard is raging and the plows are struggling to keep up. The shower room is a marginally cooler room where you can rinse off in cold water before heading back into the jungle (a private steam room) where you must truly focus on breathing.

But just when you think you’ve found something no one else could have possibly stumbled upon (the humble building, the mediocre website), you learn that even a number of Yelpers have discovered this odd little place.
