Southern norwegian mood

A statue of the danish King Kristian IV, the founder of norwegian city of Kristiansand.
At that time, the two countries were in one community.
Many ancient cultures and military personalities, which people think are danish.
They are actually norwegian born, eg Ludvig Holberg, Peder Tordenskjold, Olaf Rye.
The two architects of the Danish Constitution, in fact it was a holsteiner and a norwegian.

A walk inspired from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.

Kristiansand is a “odd” city, said with a glimpse in the eye.
Geography doesn’t lie, but at times the climate can be completely southern european.

Old fascinating norwegian construction.

Summer mood in Kristiansand.

The cathedral is a story in itself, but the tower sets the blue sky in relief.

The famous norwegian mountains, they continue right into the city.

The forests on the mountainsides can become completely rainforest-like.
