In the Middle Ages was born a vivid trading post just by the sea, along a corniche used by kings. The town of Hamina was founded in 1653 in a busy hub of international trade routes.
The old town of Hamina, located inside the fortress ramparts is an intriguing combination of different eras and styles – it is like a grand open-air museum! If you want to get to know the deeper history of Hamina, you can explore it in interesting museums: Town museum, Shopkeeper’s Museum and Vehkalahti museum.
Let’s also meet in events, workshops and exhibitions!
