About webcam "Views of Norwegian fjords" in Kirkenes
The midnight sun shines here from 17 May to 21 July, in the winter darkness comes from 21 November to 21 January. Despite its location on the coast, Kirkenes has a more continental subarctic climate, the farther west along the northern coast of Norway. In July 1972, a record 32.7 ° C (91 ° F) was recorded and a record low of -41.8 ° C (-43 ° F) in January 1999. The lowest low after 2000 was -32.7 ° C (-27 ° F) in February 2003. Due to the cool summer, the vegetation is somewhat limited to the typical for the northern taiga, but remains within the line of trees and has pines and birches. Given its northern position, the climate is still very mild, especially compared to other cities in the Arctic ports on similar parallels such as Barrow, Alaska and Amderma. The Secretariat is located in Kirkenes. One of its tasks is the creation of cross-border cultural, educational and business relations in the Barents region. At present, the city is experiencing significant optimism as a result of increased activity of oil drilling in the Barents Sea (including in Russia). Bøkfjorden, a beautiful harbor, attracted the interest of several large companies. Be sure to look in real time at the view of the Norwegian fjords, which is available to you from the webcam around the clock on-line.
