Based around Norway's Seven Mountains, the seaside city of Bergen has been an important coastal centre of trade, commerce and politics for over a millennium.

Among the hallmarks of its history, Bergen stood as Norway's capital for a while in the 13th century.

Such is the importance of its harbour that UNESCO has protected its Bryggen quays and the city remains to this day a major international hub for shipping, subsea technology and aquaculture.
