Bergen by Sunniva on 6 July 2007 5:55pm
I just spent three days in Bergen in Norway! I took the bus from Oslo. The view was stunning. It was an eight hour bus ride in the middle of the night =) It was too beautiful to sleep, so i stayed up all night listening to Strauss on my radio and looking out on the huge mountains and inland fjords =)

Bergen is a fantastic city. Theres lots of cozy little streets in the center of the town.. Almost like Italy! And it's surrounded by seven mountains. Fløyen and Ulriken are the two most known of them, cause there's a cable car you can ride to the top of Ulriken, and a sort of train-thingy on Fløyen.. Well anyway, it is really beautiul, and a place worth visiting if you are going to Norway =)

I took the train from Oslo to Bergen, it was stunning - I think they call it "the roof of the world".

If you are in Bergen do the "Norway in a Nutshell" day trip. You take a train through about 955 tunnels, a fjord cruise, and then a coach back to Bergen.

And you can get a decent curry in Bergen as well!

It is really stunning, yeah! I've taken the train as well a couple of times.. some years ago.. They haven't got mountains like that here in Oslo!

My uncle got married on top of one of the mountains in Bergen!
