We visited KOTKA on the 20th July 2007.

We drived by bus the following tour:

Helsinki - Porvoo - Loviisa - Pyhtää - Kotka

140 km

Our first way was to the lookout Haukkavuori- an old watertower.

There we enjoyed a coffee and cake in the cafè Saga and we was also on the top from the tower :-)

It was pitty, that we had raining weather, but it was`nt cold.

After coffee and nice outlook from the top of the tower we went to the habour, where were all the great ships. It was really impressive.
