Bergen is located on the south-western coast of Norway. This city of approximately 245,000 inhabitants is the largest Norwegian port and also one of the largest ports in Europe.
The topography of the region is quite varied with some of the most beautiful fjords in the country on one side, and on the other side, the city is flanked by seven hills.
Bergen is the rainiest city with rainfall lasting for weeks together; this has earned it the title of ‘the city of rain’. At the same time it has the warmest climate in the country with the average temperature in summer at 15°C.
All through its history, Bergen has been an important centre for trade and commerce across Europe. In the recent years, it has also developed as a cultural centre by playing host to a number of festivals.
