Bergen is a city in southwestern Norway (278,121 inhabitants), it is a port city, a university town, and a bishopric. The city is located at the end of a peninsula formed by many fjords advancing inland. An archipelago and three more massive islands to the west protect it from the Norwegian Sea.
The city was founded in 1070 by King Olaf III, said the Tranquil because his reign was not disturbed by internal quarrels or wars.
Until the early twentieth century the city was specialized in the manufacture of ropes, carried out in very long buildings.                           [Extracts from: Wikipedia]

In modern and contemporary times, Bergen‘s old families and elites continued to build immense empires of exchange and wealth, the best evidence of which is the luxurious buildings dotted around the city. The city was equipped with the telephone in 1882, the tramway in 1897 and the electricity in 19001.
Near the North Atlantic, the historic city stretches between seven wooded mountains.
The city enjoys a temperate ocean climate. Thermal amplitudes are low, winters are not too cold and summers are mild.                           [Extracts from: Wikipedia]
