About Kotka elsewhere
"Portrait by the artist Georges Becker of the coronation of Tsar Alexander III and Empress Maria Fyodorovna ,which took place on May 15/28, 1883 at the Uspensky Sobor Cathedral of the Moscow Kremlin."
"It was the site of the first Finnish Diet, when the country became a Grand Duchy. Kotka is home to the Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge, used by Tsar Alexander III, and later a favorite play spot for his granddaughter Anastasia."
There is a festival in Kotka each summer called Kotkan MeripÃ¤ivÃ¤t. In case you like festivals when the streets are filled with drunken people you should love the event. If you're like me, stay away from Kotka then. There really is no other reason either to go there...
About places near Kotka
tsihvola from Finland wrote about Hamina's quest harbour beach 4 years, 9 months ago
Right next to downtown Hamina is it's guest boat harbour.... if you just happen to have your windsurfing gear with you on a boat ;o) you are upto a pretty nice flat water ride on westerly, southerly and propably even on easterly winds.
On southerly winds you can start straight from the boat ramp, but beware of the lurking rocks outside of quite narrow boat channel. Otherwise walk a hundred meter straight to the small "beach".
Btw, the "official" spot for Windsurfing in Hamina is Pitkähiekat (HAMINA CAMPING PITKÄHIEKAT
Vilniementie 375, 49400 HAMINA)
