Lonely Planet review

Røros’ Lutheran church is one of Norway’s largest with a seating capacity of 1640. Constructed in 1650, it had fallen into disrepair by the mid-18th century and from 1780 a new baroque-style church was built just behind the original at a cost of 23,000 riksdaler (one riksdaler is the equivalent of Nkr4, and at the time miners earned about 50 riksdaler per year).
