Narvik was the location of a large battle in World War Two

Narvik owes its existence to the shipping of iron ore from Kiruna in Sweden, and during the Second World War the port of Narvik became a strategic target. In spring 1940, Norwegian, British, French and Polish forces therefore fought against Nazi Germany for two months in one of WWII’s largest initial battles.
