Struves meridianbue

The Struve Geodetic Arc was the first technical and scientific object to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Measurements were made in the form of a chain of triangulation along the meridian stretching from Ismail on the Black Sea in the South to Fuglenes in Hammerfest in the North. A meridian is an imaginary line on the Earth's surface running from pole to pole. The Meridian Column marks the northernmost measure point on Fuglenes in Hammerfest.

The Meridian Column is a stop on the sightseeing tour. There you get an overview of the project by our guides.
