The Bryggen in Bergen

I've been walking the city again, this time i went for a walk in the harbor area.. Bryggen, the old harbor of Bergen, is a reminder of the town's importance as part of the Hanseatic League's trading empire from the 14th to the mid-16th century. Many fires, the last in 1955, have ravaged the beautiful wooden houses of Bryggen but its main structure has been preserved.
