One hour between meetings

If you are in Kotka, we recommend the Sculpture promenade in the city centre. At the same time, you get to enjoy culture and fresh air. On the way you can find plenty of coffee places for a coffee on the go or a snack for the ride. You can also take advantage from our free mobile app by downloading it from Google play or Apple store. In the app you will find many interesting trips to take on your own.

If you find yourself to have a spare hour in Hamina, have a look at the city center. Just by walking around the circle streets you can spend an hour or two!

Three hours for an adventure

Three hours in Kotka-Hamina region will give you plenty of options. The adventurous head down to Sirius Sport Resort in Pyhtää to surf, to climb or to fly and the outdoors to Moronvuori day trip hut (in this case you need to have your own car). You can also easily spend three hours in the exhibitions of Maritime Centre Vellamo and enjoying a lunch in restaurant Laakonki.
