About Tromsø, a city in northern Norway may be a major cultural hub above the Arctic Circle . It’s famed as a viewing point for colourful aurora borealis that sometime illuminate the nighttime sky. The city’s historic centre, on the island of Tromsø, is distinguished by its centuries-old wooden houses. The 1965 Arctic Cathedral, with its distinctive peaked roof and soaring stained-glass windows, dominates the skyline. The compact city center has the most important concentration of historic wooden houses north of Trondheim, and that they co-exist with modern architecture. the homes go back 1789 to 1904, when building wooden houses were banned within the city center , as in several other Norwegian cities. The oldest house in Tromsø is Skansen, built-in 1789 on the remains of a 13th-century turf rampart. The Polar Museum, Polarmuseet, situated during a wharf house from 1837, presents Tromsø’s past as a centre for Arctic hunting and start line for Arctic expeditions.


Being a serious cultural and historical hub for Norway, Tromso features a dire requirement for a global-level cultural centre that brings tourists to Tromso or Norway at large – and provides them with the first ‘Arctic Experience’ (without having to go to the North Pole).
