Overlooking the vast sea, and clambering to the mountain sides, the big city with a lovely atmospheric small-town charm is ready to embrace any travelers, who wishes to feel the breeze of fresh air in their lungs, and see the unspoiled nature of the Fjords.
Bergen is Norway’s seconds largest city, but the atmosphere, the architecture and the passionate patriotic inhabitants gives the city a true authentic feeling of intimacy.
