Tromsø is a city and municipality in Troms county. It is the largest city in Northern Norway, the seventh largest borough and the ninth largest city in Norway. Since 1840 the city has been nicknamed "the Nothern Paris".

Tromsø municipality had 70,059 inhabitants as of 1 October 2012, but with the influx of students staying there over 75 000 people in the municipality of the year. The town of Tromsø has 57 015 inhabitants as of 1 January 2012.

Catch the Polar Museum, Northern Norwegian Art Museum, Perspective Museum, Tromsø and Tromsø Gallery of Contemporary Art Museum. Is there sunshine, you can sunbathe on the sandy beach at Telegrafbukta or drive a little out of Tromso, the Grøtfjord. One can go fishing with veteran boat Signe 1 or go to Håkøybrua or Hella.
In the afternoon you can enjoy delicious cold beer and måseegg under the sun at the restaurant Cormorant. In Polaria need to catch Ivo Caprino grand Svalbard movie and feeding of the seals.
Polar Zoo is the world's northernmost zoo with the four major arctic predators and other animals from the polar fauna.

Midnight Sun is above the northern horizon in Tromsø from May 18 to July 26, but the mountains north of the city block viewing such period is shorter days, which means that you can see it 24 hours a day from about 21 May to 21 July.

Northern Lights zone is a circle around the magnetic North Pole. The part of North Norway north of Vesterålen is in this zone, and as a result, this is where you have the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights. Tromsø is situated right in the center of the Northern Lights zone.
