The oldest remaining part of the city is on the north side of the bay of Vågen. Bryggen , the product of rebuilding after a fire in 1702, is in this area. The buildings that form Bryggen were done in the style of the medieval buildings that stood on the site prior to the fire. [ 10 ] Saint Mary's Church is the oldest building in Bergen, parts of it dating from around 1130. [ 10 ] The altar piece of the church is the oldest ornament preserved. It dates back to the Hanseatic period, probably the 15th century, when the church was used by the German hanseats as their parish church. Much of the interior was replaced during a restoration of the church in the second half of the 18th century. [

If you want to feel a bit of history, if you want to smell the mixture of salty wind and dry wood, if you want to delight your eyes with magnificent colours playing around, if you want to see typical scandinavian ornaments of the North - a walk there is a must!

Just the other side of the fish market from the main shopping area in Bergen. This is a really pretty little area to wander round. Small shops for jewllery and leather goods and a couple of little resturants as well.

Not a very large attraction, but fun to wander in never the less. It is near the fish market and harbour.
