If you have a dream of living in a cabin next to a Fjord or any Scandinavian city with rich culture then Bergen will be your best pick. Bergen is the second largest city of Norway situated between longest fjord, Sognefjord, and the beautiful Hardangerfjord.
You haven't truly experienced Bergen if you haven't wandered the streets. Walk around the city center to see the UNESCO buildings, shop from the souvenir stores here, take a walk through the maze-like alleyways behind the buildings and grab some dinner at Lokalt and Lekkert. After you have satisfied your hunger, explore the cobbled streets brimming with quirky cafes serving some really amazing coffee, art galleries, record stores, restaurants, speakeasy bars, graffiti walls and artistic houses.
This is the view of the Bergen city from the Floyen mountain. It is a beautiful city with amazing fjords and definitely worth a visit if you are planning to go to Norway.
Listed as one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites, this is a city booming with dynamic cultural life, both by night and day. Surrounded by seven mountains and fjords, it serves as the halting point for most fjords-explorers. Do experience this city both by night and day, when the bustling streets of the day phenomenally transform into beautifully lit, party-places.
We took the cable car to Mt. Ulriken the highest point of Bergen's 'Seven Mountains' and enjoyed magnificent views of Bergen and the surrounding area. As it was a rainy day, clouds allowed us only teaser view of the city, the sea, the islands, fjords and mountains. But Bergen covered with dense cottony cloud was even more awe-inspiring. Next, we went to Bryggen, the Hanseatic commercial building in the center of the city. Bryggen houses museums, shops, restaurants and pubs. Followed by a quick visit to fish market, Fisketorget and then roaming in narrow alleys of this historic city, before we realized that we were to late to catch the last ferry from Kvanndal to Utne.
