In the Norwegian Mountains


"A collection of 25 reconstructed houses from the the 1600s up until 1950 around from the whole of Buskerud County. Barns, a forge, storehouses, farmhouses, a sawmill, a water mill and town houses are arranged along the trail in small groupings, like a scene from Norwegian history. A cultural landscape has been formed to present earlier farming methods and building traditions in the county. Many of the buildings are open to the public during the summer months, and, if you are lucky, you can buy old-fashioned sweets in the old village store. A visit here offers a great opportunity to experience history and impressive countryside at the same time". Taken by RennyBA

What a beautiful scene. Tell me- what are old-fashioned Norwegian sweets like?
