This attraction in Hamina is a must see destination. Fortress has a big tent over it every summer. Bastion is also doing many conserts and festivals. In vault is also a great restaurant Kamu! which is also a must go!

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)

Just go and take a brouchure of walking in Old town with you and following the path. Nice historic place to have a daywalk. If possible, try to attend at the guided tour. We have been here several times and taken visitors there as well....More

This old fortress is now used primarily as a concert venue. It's ok to pass by, but there is not much history left.

This area is free to get to know to between happenings, but you always don't have access to the rock caves. During free markets for example at the Christmas there's sellers in and out in the area. There's first aid nursery and toilets, too.

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.
