Molde - Norway

I received this nice card of Molde thanks to a private swap with a Norwegian on facebook. Unfortunately, I cannot read his name on the card and can't remember it, either so thanks anyway. Molde is located on the northern shore of the Romsdalsfjord. The city's symbol is whale although Molde was never a whaling port. The whale is just an echo of the ancient belief that whales were a good omen, chasing (and not following) the schools of fish into the fjords at certain times of the year.
