Hämeenlinna, Finland

Häme Castle's old cellblock, last used in 1993, has been converted into a prison museum where you can visit a solitary confinement cell or see graffiti left by former inmates. Most interesting are three cells left more or less as they were when the inmates departed, along with a brief description of their occupants’ crime and lifestyle. There’s also a sauna, where prisoners would sometimes violently settle disputes.
