A quaint little village in the heart of Horten, Vestfold county, in Norway is called “Borre”. I came to know this little place by the infamous Borre Viking Marked festival that takes place there every 1-2 years. In 1837 is was originally created as Borre formannskapsdistrikt and was separated from the city of Horten in 1858. In 1988 it has roughly 681 inhabitants. In 2002, the municipality changed back to Horten. The village is most popular for the Borre National Park that extends over 45 acres with a large collection of burial mounds and royal tombs within it. The Borrehaugene – borró means “mound” – Borre mound cemetery. Borre also has a medieval single nave church dating to the 1100′s. Next to the parklands, there is a small little marina on the fjord where locals dock many of their boats.
