THE OLDEST TOWN IN NORTHERN NORWAY 

 

Founded in 1789, Vardø is the oldest town in Northern Norway. The first settlement in Vardø dates back to the 1330s when Håkon Magnusson had Vardøhus Fort built to defend Norway’s eastern border.

Today’s fort is the furthest north in the world and was completed in 1738. In the 17th century, some of the worst witch trials in northern Europe were held in Vardø. Almost 80 women were sentenced to death by burning for practicing witchcraft and magic. In August 1944 the Allies bombed the town. Although much of the town burnt down many buildings did not succumb to the flames. Pomor trade was conducted from 1740 until the Russian Revolution in 1917. Vardø was often called the Pomor capital. Today Vardø has around 2,100 inhabitants.
