  • Very interesting history on this, what used to be the worlds largest hydro power plant. First heavy water of industrial scale was produced here during ww2. The factory was sabotaged multiple times to block the Germans from producing an atom bomb which uses heavy water as a moderator. Vemork - well worth a visit!
  • Interesting to see the museum, the history about how it was build and what conditions the workers had, nature and surroundings are spectacular, but i wish there was more information about the history during wwii
