Hamina is an idyllic seaside town located beside the Eastern Gulf of Finland. The roots of Hamina go back to the 17th century, and Hamina with its age of over 360 years is actually the oldest town in the region of Kymenlaakso. The old centre of Hamina is a real attraction. The circular town plan, which is very rare on a global scale, and the surrounding star-shaped fortress constitute a unique sight which is certainly worth exploring.
Hamina takes you on a memorable journey into the past, but the Hamina of today also has much to offer - it is a thriving garrison and coastal town where there is always something going on. Meet local people at the busy market, or visitors from abroad in one of the many events.
Welcome to the circular Hamina!
