NORWAY

A nice Unesco cover from Norway, depicting 2 stamps issued in 1997 on topic "Roros Mining Town", established in the 17th. century and exploited for 333 years until 1977.
The site comprises the Town and its industrial-rural cultural landscapes; Femundshytta, a smelter with its associated area; and the Winter Transport Route. Completely rebuilt after its destruction by swedish troops in 1679, Roros contains about 2000 wooden one and two-storey houses and a smelting house. Many of these buildings have preserved their blackened wooden façades, giving the town a medieval appearance.
Roros is inscrebed at Unesco's sites since 1980.
