Bergen, Norway: Salty Harbor Town
With 250,000 people, Bergen has big-city parking problems and high prices, but visitors sticking to the old center find it charming. Enjoy Bergen's salty market, then stroll the easy-on-foot old quarter, with cute lanes of delicate old wooden houses. And, for a modern contrast, head for the urban heart of Bergen — which has a thriving personality all its own.
