Kristiansund is a nice town in the fjord country, located in the Nordmore district and includes the islands of Frei and Grip. After being destroyed by World War II, Kristiansund was rebuilt as a modern city and became an important center for the activities in Draugen and Asgad oil fields. The tourist will find here a very friendly town, with nice and warm people, green parks and small forests. It is still a city of contrasts, with modern business centre next to the nature and various events taking place here. You'll find here a traditional shipyard (Vagen) and the "Viking ship of Nordmore" (Geitbaten), which may take you in a relaxing cruise. The cultural life is also very intense, many local institutions like Opera, museums and music companies hosting various events.
