The houses here vary quite a lot although most are predominantly wooden with the more modern ones having concrete basements. The following photos show the variety
Thje above houses are all in Kirkenes. We hired a car and visited a small village/port called Bugoynes which was not burnt down when the Germans left. The houses still looked mostly modern. First a view from the road in
We also drove down the Pasvik Valley which marks the Russian border
The notice says you may not take photos using a telephoto lense over 200mm or using a tripod. We visited this abandoned farm which shows some older buildings.....some had turf roofs.
