Let Us Link With Norway (part III)



“Let Us Share Sounds and Images of The North”






The idea

City of Bergen is closely related to the lives of explorer Roald Amundsen and composer Edvard Grieg. A linkcast was prepared and organized from the very same hotel that Amundsen planned his final and fatal expedition to the North Pole. Edvard Grieg's home / museum is only a few K/ms away from the center of Bergen. The linkcast was cross-country between Norway, Greece and Cyprus.
