City Sightseeing in Mo i Rana

Moholmen, the old part of Mo i Rana, is like an oasis in the city centre. A stroll around the district is like a trip back in time, away from the modern hustle and bustle. The oldest buildings in Moholmen date back to the 17th century, and the area is a living museum of the era before industry arrived in the town.
