Molde is the administrative centre of the More og Romsdal county, in the northern fjord country. It was nicknamed "town of jazz and roses" for the oldest European jazz festival (Moldejazz, in July). Molde beautifully lies in a scenic location, between 87 white-capped Romsdal Alps, on the north shore of Romsdalfjord. It is a perfect starting point for a trip along the "Atlantic road"; the islands of Molde archipelago will reveal important historic landmarks: the Bremsnes cave (heritage of the Fosna culture), the fishing community of Langoysund, the medieval church Kvernes. Splendid natural masterpieces can be admired in the proximity of Molde: the marble grotto Trollkirka, the tallest vertical mountain face Trollveggen, the famous twisted road of Trollstigen or the highest Nortern European waterfall Mardalsfossen.
