Kirkenes with Bøkfjorden
thumb

View in northern direction over the suburbs of Kirkenes to the Bøkfjord. This remote settlement close to the Norwegian-Russian border has served as a port for iron ore mined nearby since the early 20th Century, and as an important strategic point during World War II. In the early 21st Century it mainly relies on fisheries and various types of services.
