Data from Statistics Norway (http://www.ssb.no/english/municipalities/1856)

Røst is a municipality in the county of Nordland, Norway.

There are 365 islands and skerries in the municipality situated some 100 km off the mainland, off the southwestern tip of the Lofoten chain. The municipality also has one of the biggest birdcliffs in the North Atlantic, with puffin colonies, as well as colonies of shag, kittiwake, cormorants etc.

A vivid description of medieval island life has been delivered by the shipwrecked Genoese sea captain, Pietro Querini, who was rescued by the islanders in 1432. He discribed the society as very harmonious and pious.
