    שעות Estimate Duration

Take in the natural and architectural beauty of Kotka before delving into Finland’s military history in Hamina, the country’s oldest garrison town. A leisurely walk through Sappoka Water Garden will offer a delightful respite from the urban atmosphere, as the popular park is extraordinarily serene. In contrast, the 19th-century Kotka Church enchants through its neo-gothic architecture, which features extraordinary stained glass, rose windows and ornate pillars. Another highlight is its baroque organ, the largest in Finland. The fortress town of Hamina will reveal much about the area’s military past, as it was fortified in the early 1700s after being destroyed in the Great Northern War. It was rebuilt following a rare circular town plan with a star-shaped fortress at its center. As you meander about, the guide will describe Hamina’s turbulent history, including the 18th-century wars with nearby Russia and the aerial bombing that destroyed much of the town during World War II.
