My World - Drammen - Norway

Drammen is one of the larger cities in Norway, and lies about 40 km from the capital of Norway, Oslo. The city centre lies at the end of a valley, on both sides of the river Drammenselva, and where the river meets the Drammensfjord. Drammen is also the main harbour for car and fruit import in Norway.

As of 1 January 2007, the population of the urban area of Drammen is 93,006. Drammen is the sixth largest urban area of Norway and occupies territory in five municipalities: Drammen (with about 61% of the population), Nedre Eiker (23%), Øvre Eiker (8%), Lier (5%) and Røyken (3%).[2]

The boroughs of Drammen are Austad/Fjell, Bragernes, Gulskogen, Konnerud, Skoger, Strømsø/Danvik, Tangen/Åskollen and Åssiden.

The Øvre Sund area, situated along Drammenselva, will be regulated by the municipality in order to restore this area's character. The buildings there are from the 18th and 19th century, and contribute, as well as the river and the brewery, to give the city a special identity.

Gode kveldsbilder John. Er de tatt hjemmefra?

JC said...

Very nice! There's a lot to look at and it seems even more interesting to barely be able to make things out. I'd love living in the third light on the mountain on the left :-)

Sukk...Er det noe rart i at jeg digger bloggen din!
Nydelig presentasjon av Drammen, som går meg rett til hjerte:)

Litt av et arbeid du har gjort her også, med så mange linker;)
Bra jobba.., og flotte stemningsbilder du har knipset fra byen i mitt hjerte!

Ler litt nå...Skikkelig innlevelse her...flirer:))

Skikkelig Drammenspatriot jeg!
Har nok følt at Drammen har blitt urettferdig behandlet og stemplet en håndfull ganger..
Derfor knuger jeg god omtalelse av byen til hjertet...!

(Og skal nå på audition på en operette som handler om "Drammen by" i den nye operaen...)
Ha ha ha

Fin kveld ønskes deg og fruen;)
Hilsen Drammenspatrioten(",)

Mye god rrklame for både Drammen og Norge her! Du begynner å få dreisen på de nattbildene.

Garden Angel said...

Hei igjen!
Takker for koselig kommentar hos meg:)
Duu...det er ikke det at jeg ikke vil bli med på nettfoto.
Viljen er der;) Bare det at jeg føler at jeg kommer litt til kort når det gjelder å skrive innstillinger og div.
Har ikke så veldig peiling der...
Uff...nå måtte jeg innrømme det også;) blush..hihi

Har jo vært inne å snoket der. Og kunne gjerne tenkt meg å bli med hvis det er plass til en skikkelig amatør som tar bilder på "lykke og fromme"..?
Har til og med prøvd å legge igjen kommentarer på bildene der, men det gikk jo ikke..siden jeg ikke var medlem:)

Great evening photos! I recently where very near Drammen - went to Hurumhalvön on a birthday party :-)

We did go by car from Stockholm to Hurum. Nice scenery along the way.

Norway is very beautiful, we've been talked about going on a longer trip there some time in the future.
