A Church in Roros, Trondelag, Middle Norway
Roros, or Roeros, is a town in Sor-Trondelag county, named after the Roa river.
The most northerly part of lake Femund, the third largest in Norway, is located here. This and other lakes in Roros, such as Bolagen lake, are suitable for kayaking and fishing.
Roros is one of Norway's two nationally significant mining towns with activity starting in the 17th century. Because of its authentic wooden buildings, Roros was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
