Trip to Trondheim to Røros Norway via Train
From Røros train station, we just walked to our holiday apartment. We stayed in Ålbyggården which is just beside the Røros Church and cemetery. The house has two bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, one toilet and one bathroom.

Then we started our Røros tour, the town is already a living museum so it is no doubt that it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. We explored the town by checking the different art galleries, craft shops, stores, old timber houses and buildings, and of course, the famous Røros Church.
Bergstadens Ziir also known as Røros Church, the church was built and completed in the year 1784. It is a symbol and pride of the mining town. It is one of top ten churches and one of the largest churches in Norway with a seating capacity of 1600. Unfortunately, we were not able to get inside the church because it was already closed. Entrance Fee is NOK50.
The houses in Sleggveien roadshows the social history of the mining community. The top five houses on the top of the road, where the day laborers, craftsmen, gypsies, and other people who have no permanent work and no land to farm lived. Some of these houses are open to the public during the summer season, it was April so it was closed.
Fun in the Snow
Of course, we enjoyed the snow. For someone who lives in a tropical country, seeing snow makes us happy. Even the freezing cold can't stop us. We do crazy things like my mom and son ate the snow. Waah! Watch the video here.

We made our very first snowman, (tiny snowman). I just realized that it is not easy to make a snowman.
The following day, we went to Smelthytta Museum, it is just walking distance from the apartment. The museum showcases the 19th-century clothing, the history of Røros Copperworks and how the people produce copper.

I wish we had more time to explore the mining town but we had to end our trip. If you are going to Norway, you can include this in your itinerary.
