The new Maritime Centre in Kotka stretches from the heart of the city till the north-eastern end of the City Terminal, this being the perfect place for travelers that want to discover Finland. Kotka’s Maritime Centre Vellamo attracts tourists both through its beautiful design and its practical utility.
The Mariticime Centre holds a historical importance for Kotka. It represents the culture of the city and its design inspires other projects in the area since the city is in a constant architectural development. The plan is to turn the City Terminal (also known as the old harbour) into a Culture Harbour.
Cultural activities will be held here and different attractions would be put to use for locals. The project has in mind to add a cinema, a multipurpose arena, a ferry terminal and a guest marina.
