How do you move a town? At the end of the 19th century, this area had grown into what was called “The Klondyke of Sweden”, and pretty soon it was discovered that the newly built town of Malmberget was standing on the unstable ground because of the intense mining for iron ore. Since then Malmberget has constantly been changing as new ore is found, until 2004, when a final decision was made. The whole town had to go!
Join us on a guided ride through the remnants of what was once a flourishing mining community, and on into the future, with historic buildings being moved and whole new neighborhoods being created. All in all, an unparalleled urban transformation!
