Old Morokulien Map Sketch
This is a sketch of Morokulien as it used to be
before there was built a petrol station on the Swedish side. On Norwegian side
the situation is more or less as it was. Brennastua is a building from the 1700s
where the local municipality arranged its first meeting. This building was also
used for radio station before the present log was being built. The territory of
Morokulien was originally making 12 Scandinavian mål (equals 2.964 acres) on each
side of the border, or totally 5.928 acres. Now it is slightly smaller due to
reconstruction of the highway, but about 30 persons are working in Morokulien.
The "neutral zone" on the map is
referring to a demilitarized zone between Norway and Sweden established in 1905.
Until 1993 it was in Norway not allowed to carry any weapon closer to the
Swedish border than 1000 metres.
