The History of Bergen

The History of Bergen, Norway

“From a Viking trading city called Bjørgvin to the modern city we know today, Bergen’s history is a fascinating one.

Modern Bergen is known as the gateway to the fjords and is an important economic centre in western Norway. With millions visiting each year, Norway’s second city is thriving.

Aside from its proximity to the fjords, many of the city’s attractions are historic in nature. From the UNESCO World Heritage Site Bryggen to Fantoft Stave Church, Bergen is a must-visit designation for history buffs. If you’re planning a trip or you just fancy an armchair tour, make a cup of coffee and find somewhere comfortable!”
