Such a beautiful old city! White little wooden houses... This is a must, just to walk around slowly wondering and watching all these cute little shops etc. Absolutely worth visiting, relaxing...

Clean, cute and majestic. Not a lot of tourists (which was a huge bonus to the place). See old Norway and enjoy harbour views away from people and traffic.
