The town of Kirkenes in northernmost Norway, with its 3400 inhabitants, is preparing for an expected boom as a shipping hub, as global warming has led to the opening up of the Northern Sea Route along Russia's Arctic coastline. The travel time between Tokyo and Hamburg, for example, has been cut 40%. Also it is planned to build a railway from Kirkenes to Rovaniemi in Finland in order to speed up even more the communication between Asia and Europe.
