Wanderlust: Norway - Bergen

On day 4 we continued our route in the direction of Bergen. We arrived quite late in the afternoon, because we stopped a few times to enjoy the beautiful scenery and to see a copy of a Stavkirke in Fantoft.
We parked near Bergen and took the Bybanen (light rail system) to the centre of the city. The Bryggen houses, firms from the Hanseatic period, stood beautifully crooked in the sunlight and I was genuinly impressed.

I was also impressed by the fish market. Especially by seeing their merchandise, in particular: whale meat! I wasn't feeling comfortable after seeing that. They even offered whale burger. I'm aware that Norwegian people don't mind eating whale, but I was a bit shocked.

We went out for dinner and enjoyed a beautiful sunset at the harbour.
