Trondheim & Røros, with pure nature in between!

Trondheim & Røros
With pure nature in between!

A few photos from Trondheim and the wooden town of Røros in the middel parts of Norway. Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway,
while Røros is a old mining town with just about 5 000 people. Both cities is located in the same county, but with a three hour drive
inbetween. So here you will see both the urban show, historic show and pure nature. I took these pics this easter, so prepare for a
cold and white show!

Trondheim in a distance.




































Then
Lets go southeast to Røros
But Røros isn't just anywhere, its situared just around the tree border, and far to the east of Norway, close to the Swedish border. Mild
and very dry during sommers, but as cold as Siberia during winter. Record cold is -51c. Before you reach Røros, you will have to pass by
mountains after driving through some long valleys.
















A whindchill is bringing it down to -45c, doesn't seem to bother these guys!




Closing some more populated areas again!



And there we were, Røros.
Old mining town from the 16th century, listed on the UNESCO Heritage List and a very popular tourist target. Wooden houses here have
been kept well, so do the church, which is the 5th largest in Norway, seating 1600.


















Old farms in the mountains slopes.


Modern huts in the mountain slopes.

Hope you enjoyed this one, even though it is not the most urban districts of the world!
