Kristiansund is a port city and municipality on the western coast of Norway in the Nordmore district, More og Romsdal county. In 1742 it was officially awarded township status, and is still the major town for the region. Municipality's administrative center is the city of Kristiansund. Other settlements include the villages of Nedre Frei, Kvalvag and Rensvik.

Kristiansund is one of the Hurtigruten ports along the "Express Route" (Norwegian Coastal Express). This is a regularly scheduled ferry and cruise itinerary in Norway, between the turnaround ports Bergen (southmost) and Kirkenes (northmost).

Started in 1876 and still going strong is the Sundbat ("Sound Boat") shuttle service with a capacity of a few tens of passengers, which travels between the islands. The small motor ferry crosses the harbour to Innlandet from Kirkelandet, then goes on to Nordlandet, Gomalandet, and back to Kirkelandet, repeating the roundtrip in half-hour intervals on weekdays. The Sundbat bears the distinction of being the oldest motorized regular public transport system in the world in continuous service.

Kristiansund is an important cultural centre in Nordmore region. The city is probably best known for housing the oldest opera in Norway, which was established by Edvard Bræin in 1928. There is an annual opera festival (every February) named The Opera Weeks (Operafestukene). Kristiansund is also host city of Nordic Light, Northern Europes largest photo festival.

The archipelago of Grip, situated northwest of Kristiansund was the smallest municipality of Norway until 1964. Currently it is a deserted fishing village, but popular tourist attraction for its unique location and special architecture. The smallest stave church in Norway, which was constructed in the end of 15th century is also situated at Grip.

Vagen's old city structure is a center for the historical fishing settlement in Kristiansund. Also located here is Mellemværftet - an old shipbuilding facility for sailer ships. Norwegian Clipfish Museum is another attraction not to be missed.


Highlights: Bridge linked island town, 17th century customs house
