If Franz Josef Land is not considered to be in Europe, then Europe's northernmost point is the northern point of the island of Rossøya, an islet in Svalbard, north of Spitsbergen at 80° 49′ 44.41″ N.This coastal municipality is like many others in Finnmark, home of large seabird colonies.The main tourist attractions are the North Cape and the nearby Knivskjellodden.The North Cape first became famous when the English explorer Richard Chancellor rounded it in 1553 while attempting to find a sea route through the Northeast Passage.The 926-square-kilometre (358 sq mi) municipality is the 119th largest by area out of the 426 municipalities in Norway.Nordkapp is the 356th most populous municipality in Norway with a population of 3,291.But that village was totally destroyed by the Germans in 1944 and it never recovered.

The Honningsvåg Tunnel goes through a large mountain near Honningsvåg.All municipalities in Norway, including Nordkapp, are responsible for primary education (through 10th grade), outpatient health services, senior citizen services, unemployment and other social services, zoning, economic development, and municipal roads.The municipality is governed by a municipal council of elected representatives, which in turn elect a mayor.The municipality is named after Nordkapp (North Cape), a 307-metre-high (1,007 ft) cliff that is commonly referred to as the northernmost point of Europe.However, the true northernmost point of the European mainland is Cape Nordkinn (), at 71° 08′ 02″ N, located about 20 kilometres (12 mi) from the village of Mehamn on the Nordkinn Peninsula.
