Meridianas is primarily notable for its unique history. Built in Finland in 1948, the barquentine was used as a training vessel for sailors and captains. Twenty years later, having served its purpose, Meridianas was finally decommissioned. In 2012, however, it was brought back, renovated, and turned into a restaurant. Today, Meridianas is an integral part of the port’s landscape and one of its most prominent symbols. The main hall is equipped with a glass floor, which affords a fascinating look at the vessel’s old wooden structures below.
