Bodø is the seat of Nordland county in Norway. With 50 000 citizens, it is the second largest city in Northern Norway. Bodø is located on a peninsula facing the open sea, and infamously windy.

It is a gateway to the Arctic, being the northern end station of the Norwegian railway network (except the short connection from Narvik to Sweden), and an important ferry station.

Understand

In the Viking Age, the province was known as Hålogaland, and famous for shipmaking. In 1663, Bodø was mentioned as a village with postal service. In the 19th century, fish canning became an important industry for Bodø, and made the city grow. As Nazi Germany invaded Norway in 1940, they bombed Bodø on May 27, destroying most buildings. The city was rebuilt after the war, and therefore looks remarkably modern.

In 1960, the American spy plane U-2 heading for Bodø was shot down by the Soviet Union, and Soviet leader Nikita Chrushchev threatened to bomb Bodø.

Bodø has a university, and a young and rapidly growing population.
