Tromso is a surprise to most visitors: Here you find art, history, sophistication, good food and an infamous nightlife in a bustling, tiny city. All of it, though, is surrounded by spectacular scenery that is visible from everywhere in town.
The city is home to the world's northernmost university, as well as research institutes and satellite based industry. The population is therefore highly skilled, but retains the straightforwardness and sense of humor that the North is known for.
Tromso's most visited attractions include Polaria, The Arctic Cathedral, the Cable Car, the Tromso Museum, the Polar Museum and the Botanic Garden.
