Do you want to be a Guinness World Record holder

 

Estonia will celebrate International Sauna Day on Saturday, June 8. To mark the occasion, a Guinness World Record event will take place on the same day. The aim is to set a world record of posting the most photos of sauna sessions on the organisers’ Facebook page. The event is free and open to anyone from anywhere in the world from 7 pm to 8 pm Estonian time.

So how can you participate in this sauna event? Register as a participant on the Visit Estonia website https://www.visitestonia.com/en/saunarecord. On the day of the event, take a picture of yourself in a sauna. It doesn’t matter how many people are taking part, so you can take part on your own. No nudity is allowed in the photos, so wear a bathing suit or towel.

The photo must be posted on the official Visit Estonia world record page on Facebook. If the sauna group is large, then each person can post their own photo, as only the number of photos counts in this world record attempt. However, do not post multiple photos: only one photo per user counts.

Visit Estonia, the Estonian Rural Tourism Association, the Finnish Sauna Association and the International Sauna Association (ISA), whose members include of course the hardy sauna nations of Finland and Estonia, are behind the World Record for the Most Pictures in a Sauna in an Hour.
