Pictures from Bergen
During the winter break in February Alessio and I went to visit Bergen, and yes it was rather chilly! Bergen is the second largest city in Norway and it lies on the west coast and it has a huge port. There are many trips to take to see the fantastic fjords, we did a short one of 3 hours, but you can take ones that last the whole day or more!
There are quite a number of things to do with kids, we visited the aquarium and a viking museum. We also visited the Hanseatic Museum and Kode Art museum which had a part for kids. There is also a funicular to take you up to Mount Floyen 320m above see level, it has brilliant views of the city and surrounding area.
Bryggen the old wharf was very interesting to explore, you can walk in between the buildings and of course very colourful. There was quite a lot of street art which I do like to see!
We really enjoyed visiting Bergen in spite of the weather, of course visiting in the spring or summer is better as you can spend more time outdoors.
Enjoy the weekend!
