Hamina is a town and a municipality of Finland. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Santalahti Nature Trail and Hamina Town Hall. Visiting Riverside Park and Valkmusa National Park will get you outdoors. Step out of Hamina to go to Lappeenranta and see Prisma, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Hamina Old Town, pause for some serene contemplation at Marian Kirkko, take in the spiritual surroundings of Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cathedral, and admire the striking features of Main Building of Military School.
