Winter. The deep rustle of the wind screathing in your ears through a thick beenie, waves bigger than life and calm streets balancing out your mind´s quelms and questions. This is as close as you´ll ever get to being on an island –without being on one. Being situatated on a peninsula, you can arrive to Hanko by car or public transport. The small and romantic towncenter practically beckons you to sit down by a cup of steaming hot coffee, the scent of fresh buns whisking you away to a happy place. Shop slowly in our boutiques, allow yourself a unique movietheater experience and if you´re feeling it, why not jam to live music at a pub? There IS life in the winter, too.
