  • Interesting all the reports of this dog, mascot of the Norwegian Armed Forces, was along with its Owner patrolling the waters of Norway during the second war. He has many reports of his heroic attitudes. This statue in honor of Bamse, war hero and in a way symbolizes all that occurred in the region where only the Church remained intact during the Second War. It's worth checking out. It is faced with the souvenir shop and also where the tourist information center is located.

  • Teddy Bear was both a ship's dog and a minerydderdog during the 2nd World war. She learned to pick up the sailors at the local pub when the ship was leaving. She was the entire mascot of the Norwegian Navy and was perpetuated with Matroshue. This photo bleb used for both Christmas and Easter cards during the war. Climber she deserved a statue

  • The statue of the famous Sea-dog Bamse is located next a cruise ship pier. Bamse was a dog of Captain Hafto, master of the Norwegian whaler Thorodd. This ship was destined for coast patrols during World War II and Bamse was estimated by crew because he was a very kind and brave dog. He was mascot of the Norwegian Royal Navy.

  • Den er til minne om marieskipshunden som blei verdenskjent under WW2 - må nevne at hunden var innrullert i Den norske marine. Hundens ansikt vender mot SW hvor denne døde i 1944 i Montrose - der finnes først og fremst hovedstatuen. Det er gikk ut bok på både engelsk og norsk. Da statuen i Honningsvåg blei avduket var det stor festivitas med sekkepipeorkester og begge forfatterne var tilstede, hvor de på den lokale bokhandelen signerte bøker - som senere blei oversatt til norsk.
  • Great statue. After understanding the story behind it, I think it's cute.
