Molde Norway stamp

Norway 1992, 250 year anniversary of the city Molde.
The city of Molde is located on the northern shore of the Romsdalsfjorden.

The stamp shows a view across the Molde Archipelago, a chain of about 50 tree-clad islands and islets, towards summits in the south. Molde is famous for its panoramic view of some 222 partly snow-clad peaks of the Romsdal Alps of which the Store Venjetinden (1'852 m) is the highest.
