Norway Top Landmarks
What to see and what place to visit in Norway? The question is not as simple as it seems to be. It’s just too much wonders for a comparably small country.

The view that’s opening from the top of the rock is astounding. Not many people have the courage to come to the cliff’s edge and look straight beneath, where two thousand feet down, the vawes of Lysefjorden fjord are splashing.
Trollfjorden or Trollfjord is not so long but very narrow and surrounded by a kilometer high mountains fjord halfway between Bergen and Kirkenes. On a rare picture above you can see cruise ferry named Trollfjord entering the Trollfjorden.
