Welcome to Kotka
About 130km east of Helsinki, Kotka is Finland's only city set on an island. In Kotka's early days, the Kymijoki provided a critical transport route for logging and rich waters for fishing, so the city developed as a port – vital for shipping out those valuable exports. Nowadays it's one of Finland's most important industrial ports.
