Hamina (Swedish: Fredrikshamn), is a town located approximately 145 km (90 miles) east of the country's capital Helsinki, in the Kymenlaakso region of Southern Finland. Sights include the Town Hall originally built in 1798, the Town and Shopkeeper's Museums and three churches dating from the early 1800s. The Hamina Fortress was built in the 18th century - the corners of the fortress form six bastions, named after towns in Finland.
Named in honour of the King Frederick I of Sweden in 1723, Finnish people shortened the name to Hamina. The rebuilding of the town took place in 1722–1724 and the star-shaped fortress and the circular town plan, designed by Axel Löwen, are based on Central European and Italian Renaissance fortress concepts from the 16th century.
