Hamina Town Hall

Reviewed By Katja A - Hamina, Finland

This place is worth of stopping. Try to get selfie here with Town hall, and maybe fit one of the nearby churches into same picture. Good starting point to your walk around the city. Two cafés nearby - one under the tower the other on the opposite side of the street.

The city has very unique circle streets and nice history. I recommend going to tourist information to het "walk in Hamina" map and walk the route. Museums are nice, and cafes hard to choose from! On a nice weather seaside is must!

Hamina Fortress

Reviewed By lmsk2014 - Helsinki, Finland

The Hamina bastions often host events, such as Concerts and markets.
Whether there is an event happening or not, you can take a walk around the ramparts. On a warm day, bring a picnic with you.
If you have kids, they will for sure love running about and exploring the bastion (there are few places where you can fall down, so make sure you advice your kids to watch out).

Main Building of Military School

Reviewed By SergShor - St. Petersburg, Russia

Это здание бывшей офицерской школы где некогда учился сам маршал Манергейм. Сейчас оно действующее здание кадетского корпуса. Рядом с площадью у этого здания выставлены интересные экспонаты орудий. Здание расположено в 5 минутах ходьбы от ратушной площади города.

Statue of Varvara Shantina

Reviewed By beachstone2c - Helsinki, Finland

The statue of Varvava is a must see target in Hamina. In fact the statue itself is not that impressive but the story behind it is - and it is an atomic part of Hamina.

Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cathedral

Reviewed By beachstone2c - Helsinki, Finland

The Cathedral is right in the middle of the city. It is not the most magnificent Cathedral but certainly worth visiting. Scales nicely with the city itself.

St. John's Church

Reviewed By johannakatriina - Hamina, Finland

Light colored church is wooden dark inside. I liked the color of the outside when we had wedding here. The stairs gave us troubles when we buried my mother. This it not usually preferred for funerals, but some of the normally used chapels where renovated during that time. The designers had problems how to make air conditioning equipment invisible on the roof..

German Self-Propelled Gun StuG III

Reviewed By beachstone2c - Helsinki, Finland

It was interesting to discover that the swastiga was used by the Finnish Air Force already in 1918 - good information about how the swastiga was used by the Finnish military before it was banned. And the Stug III is worth seeing too.

Marian Kirkko

Reviewed By Djips5 - St. Petersburg, Russia

Когда первый раз услышала слово "Кирха" - очень заинтересовалась, что же это такое. Оказалось всего лишь лютеранский храм. Но фонетически "Кирха" звучит очень загадочно, интригующе и заманчиво. Думаю неспроста. Данная Кирха Святой Марии отражает все что я когда-то уловила в этом слове. Старинная, скромная, никакой вычурности, и вроде вообще неприметное здание. Но есть в ней какая-то энергетика. Место наполнено силой и тишиной. Особенно впечатлил крест на стене, какой-то он таинственный и завораживающий!
