Fantoft Stave Church and Hakon's Hall
We traveled from Oslo S to Bergen in NSB (Norges Statesbaner) train and by 4:15 AM there was light and I could see the mountains and ice on the mountains while we were passing by Myrdal and Voss and finally arrived in Bergen, Norway.
Then we went to the harbor and and walked through the downtown before catching the tram to Fanfoft station to see the Fantoft Stave Church. The walk from the station was about 15 minutes. We noticed a station called Florida on the way to Fantoft.
After spending some time at the church we came back to downtown and met some Tamil people from Thanjavur living in Bergen, Norway. After purchasing some gifts at the local market we went to see Hakon's Hall and Rosenkrantz Tower near the Bryggen area near the harbor.
We went back the Hotel took some rest and walked to the Bergen station to collect our Norway in a Nutshell tickets from the NSB station. We also checked out the luggage storage area so that we could deposit our luggage after checking out of Hotel and collecting them before departing to Oslo S tomorrow night.
