Roros is Norway's coldest city. In January 1914, the air temperature dropped below -50. The mining village received the title of the best world landmark. It is the only Norwegian city located in the mountains. For more than 2.5 centuries, the mining town has occupied a leading position in mining.
The city is protected by UNESCO and is part of the World Heritage Site. There are no stone buildings (with the exception of the church in 1784), all buildings and houses are wooden.
Where the copper workshop was once located, the Museum of History and Local History is now located. Noteworthy is the city's wooden church, one of the ten important churches in the country. It is able to accommodate more than 1.5 thousand parishioners. The city temple was erected in the 18th century and to this day symbolizes the prosperity of Reros.
About 100 city buildings are located under the temple. Currently, the city has the same appearance as in the 18-19 centuries. Building structures are made only of wood.
