Lillehammer is an amazing town located in the Norwegian province Oppland. It was founded in 1390 and originally wore the name Litlikaupangr, which means «a small trading place». Over time, trade in Lillehammer began, and as a result, the town received the official status of a trading city in 1827. Lillehammer was most famous for the Winter Olympics held in 1994, and now there are constantly being organized competitions at the World Cup.
Primarily, Lillehammer is a ski resort. There are 3 ski stations on its territory: Scheikampen, Kvitfjell and Hafjell. You can enjoy the fascinating view from the top of each mountain on which they are located, but this is still not enough. We recommend you visit the open-air ethnographic museum. You can see the oldest wooden buildings in Norway, the time of the Vikings, there. The Lillehammer Museum of Art keeps the best works of such Scandinavian artists as A. Tidemand, F. Talou, E. Munck and many others. The automobile museum features exclusive exhibits, such as the oldest car of the museum – the Wartburg of 1889. Lovers of active rest, we advise you to spend time with benefit in the sports center «Hakon» and the aquapark «Jorekstad», where you can choose the most suitable sports section for you.
