We love writing and talking about Estonian sauna culture and our sauna adventures around the world. We've also hosted a few international media outlets already at Rangi saun. Below are some of our favourite articles and videos that have either been created by us or about us.


Estonia: Land of saunas, forests, & startups

We took the Boston Globe to the sauna for this wonderful article, which perfectly encapsulates Estonians as "the digital people and the forest people".


Interview with Adam Rang

Adam recently gave an interview to Tallinn in your Pocket, a useful magazine published for visitors to the city, for a special sauna-themed edition.


Smokin' hot!

There's a nice feature about us in EasyJet's December in-flight magazine. Journalist Lauren Bravo was really interested in exploring what makes Estonian sauna culture unique, while Estonian photographer Gerli Paju (aka Ekvilibrist) took amazing photos. The result is a very funny article that perfectly encapsulates who we are. You can read it online (from page 38) on the link below.


Here's proof Estonians can vote online anywhere!

We voted in our tünnisaun (hot tub) to demonstrate how i-voting works in Estonia. The video went viral and even made it to Japanese TV!

Adam Rang: Dual citizens are part of Estonian story

Who has the right to be Estonian and what's the best way to protect our culture? This is a hot issue so Adam was asked by the state broadcaster to share his perspective. This isn't really about saunas, but gives the context for why we think it's important to help people learn about Estonia.

Career Hunt 2018

Estonia's state broadcaster, ERR, reported about the launch of our business.
