Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Please ignore that clue about old Norwegian for "banquet hall." I got it from Wickedpedia and it appears to be incorrect. Sorry about that.

i have now idea what seaduction is looking for, but i found very interesting information about a town called "Saltstraumen" around the mentioned latitude of 67° N...

The Saltstraumen has the strongest tidal current in the world. Up to 400,000,000 cubic metres (520,000,000 cu yd) of seawater forces its way through a 3-kilometre (1.9 mi) long and 150-metre (490 ft) wide strait every six hours, with water speeds reaching 22 knots (41 km/h; 25 mph).
22 kts of tidal current... holy crab!

The quiz location is just a little south of Saltstraumen.

This is taking too long.
The municipality has an historic church. The stone church was built around the year 1130.
