The only road that connects Russia and Norway is the route of E-105 which goes through Murmansk, Russian towns of Sputnik, Nikel and Zapolyarniy and Norwegian county Finnmark with a near-border town of Kirkenes. This is the main overland route of cross-border cooperation in this region. The less restrictive control of border crossing for locals provides Nikel and Zapolyarniy on the one side, and Kirkenes on the other with a constant flow of the nearest foreign neigbours. Norwegians come mostly to fill up the tank with relatively inexpensive fuel, while Russians used to come for shopping before the collapse of the rouble. Now it's more and more cultural and touristic purposes only. The signs with names of the central streets in Kirkenes are dublicated in Russian to facilitate navigation.
