Harbor Norway
Kristiansund, not to be confused with Kristiansand, Norway, is a town on the western coast of Norway, built on a group of four islands. 

It is believed that after the melting of the Ice Age, this area was one of the earliest settled, possibly around 8000 BC. The Vikings later controlled the area, but this town was first established in the 17th Century, as a harbor and fishing village.

Today, Kristiansund is known for its harbor, cluster of pictaresque homes, architecture, history, waterfront, uniquely built bridge, and maritime activities and commerce.
