One city – four islands

Kristiansund, Norway

Kristiansund is beautifully located, at the far end of the sea today on 3 islands Inlandet, Kirkelandet/Gomalandet and Nordlandet. There were originally 4 islands devided by sea but today Kirkelandet and Gomalandet are connected by sanding.

The town became known for its clipfish production as early as 1737. In recent times, oil and gas have become the main industry here.

Kristiansund is one of Norway's most distinctive cities with its post-war architecture in many different colors. It was almost wiped out in 1940, nearly 900 houses burned down after the city bombed. The city that meets visitors today has been built up over the last 50 years.

Much of the city lost its old character, but you can still experience what it was like if you visit the old town on the lower part of the Inland.

In Kristiansund you will soon discover that you are visiting a cultural city with the Opera, Sunbåten and the clipfish history.
