Kirkenes

The furthest north we're ever likely to go. Kirkenes is on the Russian border and felt like a strange place. The sun never set and while we never saw the sun, this grey white sky hung over everything. We stayed in the Arctic Hotel (in the picture). The town had 2 grocery shops, a little cinema, a library, a charity shop and not much more. The highlight was the church.

(We actually did go further north from here, though I don't want to spoil upcoming posts. And besides, I am only more keen to go to Svalbard than I was before...)
