the City of Bergen
Gateway to the Fjords
Bergen became one of the Hanseatic League´s most important bureau cities. The city is located on the western coast of Norway, in Hordaland, with its centre situated between a group of mountains known collectively as de syv fjell ("the seven mountains"), although the number of mountains is a matter of definition.
Bergen is host to part of the country´s large oil industry, as well as deep sea operations. Its harbours are used by everything from small pleasure vessels to cruise ships and cargo vessels, and is the base of many of the country´s fishing vessels.
