Beautifully preserved. Read about its history and the specialness of its blue interior. A tour guide with more information is helpful. Also explore the graveyard on the church grounds.

A must see when visiting Røros. Make sure you find out the opening times, so you don’t miss out on it. Often concerts in the evenings too!
