The area around the Sjoegata street in Mosjoen town center is historical. By building, living, shopping and working in the Sjoegata street, people are making history there every day, too, just as they did in the old days. The old buildings in the street are being taken care of as an integral part of the pulsating city life there, giving character to this small town.

Additionally, you will find galleries, an authentic general store, restaurants and a beautiful hotel garden from where you can fish. Architectural conservation work in the Sjoegata street has been honored with a national architecture award and a national environmental award.

The wooden buildings along the river are former warehouses of the tradesmen, farmers and seamen in which goods were stored for shipment or transit. The 18th and 19th century buildings give a feeling of importance of the city of Mosjoen.

Sjøgata in Mosjøen consists of Northern Norway's longest series of wooden houses and boathouses from the 1800s. The colorful houses are a delight for the camera lens. Shops​, artists, cafés and museum invites to a relaxing visit.

Quaint narrow street with lovely old houses, shops and buildings. A nice, short quiet stroll in a very small town.

It was saturday afternoon, it is really nice but it is just a 5 minute walk, very old looking houses and signs, i immediately thought i was in some kind of Norwegian western (cowboy western :) ) Ennio Moriconi music might be ideal to play...More

A must do place to wander in the evening. Has a really authentic frontier town feel. The locals look to have tried hard to keep the authenticity.
