Risør/Norway - 07/26/2016

Risør the "White city of the Skagerrak" is the best preserved wooden building place of Europe.
In former times Risør lived on wood trade. When the wood commerce was moved to Kristiansand the people of Risør refused to move there. Later in the war of 1808-18 many warships started from Risør.
Above the town is a very prominent limestone rock.
Each year in August a wood boat regatta takes place in Risør.
We enjoyed our stay in the lively yet relaxed town a lot :-)
