Located on the west coast of Norway, the city of Bergen lies on the peninsular of Bergenhalvoyen and is often referred to as the City of The Seven Mountains. The city, which mainly lies on the shore of Byfjorden, is an internationally renowned centre for shipping, petroleum and for higher education.
The Norwegian Fjords which surround the city have been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the world's most spectacular natural tourist attractions. The Fjords are characterised by high, snow topped, steep mountains which surround them and are themselves deep and narrow. There is evidence that the area has been inhabited for centuries and today the area has a number of farms which some are by the fjords and some higher in the mountains.
Bergen is Norway's busiest and largest port. There are regular ferry services departing from the port to Hirtshals in Denmark. Passenger catamarans also run from Bergen south to Haugesund and Stavanger and north to Sognefjord and Nordfjord. Bergen is also the southern terminus of Hurtigruten, the Coastal Express, which operates with daily services along the coast to Kirkenes.
