15 Places to Visit in Norway
Winter is coming…
If you are a fan of HBO’s Game of Thrones, then, you might have heard the Northerners say these words with conviction. As for those who are not familiar with it, it only means one thing – winter is coming and it’s HOLIDAY IN NORWAY, ALL THE WAY! (That rhymed!)
The best time to go to Norway is during the winter season when the snow is at its whitest and from a far, it looks like squishy cotton. The ambiance alone is magical and the exquisite natural phenomena that can be experienced only in Norway are beyond words.
Here are 15 of the Best Places to Visit when you’re in Norway:
15. Knut Hamsun Centre – Hamaroy, Nordland County
If you want to explore your artistic side, then, the Knut Hamsun Centre in Hamaroy in Northern Norway will surely pique your creative juices. It features the life and works of Nobel Prize in Literature winner, Norwegian contemporary novelist Knut Hamsun who wrote the best-sellers “Growth of the Soil” and “Hunger”.
The museum was opened for public viewing in June 2010 and was recognized and given several architectural awards both local and foreign. It was initially painted by Architect Steven Holl in 1994, who based his design of the museum on a mixture of Hamaroy landscape, culture and tradition with Hamsun’s elaborate literary pieces.
This would be an interesting visit, don’t you think?
