PICTURES from DRAMMEN

Drammen, the capital of Buskerud. The city grew up around the Drammen River estuary, and the river formed the basis of its proud history as a seaport. Drammen have adopting the areas around the river to create recreational, cultural and residential areas and walking trails along the riverside to enjoy. Restaurants, cafes, nightclubs and shopping complexes, and other places have opened.

 Biedermeier District  
Biedermeier district Along the river at Bragernes, from Øvre Storgate 35 upwards, now lies the so-called Biedermeier district. Some small industry existed in the area, among them a whip factory, a tobacco mill and a brewery.

One of the houses served as a maternity room, another one as an apothecary. Today, with its large and characteristic buildings, the Biedemeier district is a well-preserved residential area.
