Why Hamina Museum Street?

All Hamina's key museums are located along the same street, Kadettikoulunkatu. Only the Kauppiaantalo (Merchant's House) Museum, managed by the Hamina Town Museum, is in the neighboring block. In addition, the street itself is full of historical sites.

This project offers you the whole history of Hamina in one package.

Parking is free in Hamina. In some parking lots, however, a parking disc is required, so please note that.

Along the Raatihuoneentori there are some parking spaces for cars and for a couple of buses. You will find more parking spaces along the streets leading from the Town Hall.

The actual parking areas can be found at the intersection of Isoympyräkatu and Rauhankatu and around the Market Square. Parking is free in these too.

Authentic Tradition
Hamina Fortress

In Hamina's symmetrical fortress model, the circle was geometrically divided by squares in such a way that an octagonal polygon was created.

There are only two such star-shaped fortresses, inside which there is a town in the shape of a circle, left in Europe: Hamina and Palmanova.
