The Kantasatama area is an integral part of the history of Kotka. Even before Kotka officially claimed the status of city in 1879, Kantasatama was an active harbour. Port operations continued to the early 2000’s. When Maritime Centre Vellamo opened in 2008, it sparked the idea of developing the entire port area into a vibrant part of the Kotka city centre. Active development flourished all through the 2010s, culminating in the decision to build Event Centre Satama and the new Kotka campus of the South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences in Kantasatama, next to Maritime Centre Vellamo.
Kantasatama will be an inspiring, exciting centre of events, learning, creativity and experience that will command attention on a global scale. It has always been the meeting point of people, cultures and worlds. It will continue to bring us together tomorrow, thus giving birth to new, unique stories. Will one of them be yours?
