NordKapp is the northernmost point of Europe, located at 71°10′21″N, 25°47′40″E.
Everybody think that this is the northest point of Europe, but it is false because the
the neighbouring point Knivskjellodden is actually some 1,500 metres further north. The NordKapp was named by English explorer Richard Chancellor in 1553 and then it was occasionally visited by explorers. Very famous was the visit of King Oscar II of Norway in 1873 and Thailand's King Chulalongkorn in 1907.
Here there is a big building with a church, a Thailandese Museum, shops and restaurants.
From the globe you can see a wonderful wiev of the cliff and of the Midnight sun.
