  • Could be enjoyable if you are interested in history. For me it was just a nice statue. Nice place though.  more »
  • Owing to the polar nights only saw it in the dark and had to wade through deep snow. However, its in a nice open space area overlooking the entrance to the fjord which is a nice touch.  more »
