Alesund, Norway
Alesund

Alesund is a renowned for its Art Nouveau architecture, which was introduced to the city after a fire destroyed 800 buildings in 1904. Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany immediately responded with aid and the Art Nouveau style known as Jugendstil, which was popular at the time, was applied to the new buildings. Elegant spires and turrets dominate this historic city.

Olden, Norway
Olden

By the mid-19th century, European travellers were cruising the waters of the Nordfjord and visiting the village of Olden. The Romantic Movement inspired this new taste for dramatic landscape - and Norway had plenty of dramatic landscape. Then as now, travellers were impressed, moved, and not frequently overwhelmed by the stark contrast between peaceful rural farmsteads and a towering wilderness of mountain peaks and glaciers.
