If you are in Hamina, this is a must see. Try to attend a guided tour as otherwise it would be just abbig tent, good restaurant and a lot of bricks. We liked it.

Hamina Fortress is quite popular to visit by itself or during concerts and fairs. If your never been there than worth to visit and nowadays Kamu (one of the best lunch places) is located here. (Check also Kamu's review)

This is rather popular place to organise e.g. conserts , exibitions, fairs. Hamina Fortress is rather popular to visit by itself. If your never been there than worth to visit it just nearby old town.
