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.

 Øvre Strandgate  
Strangata In recent years the park has been used for outdoor concerts during the Drammen River Festival held in August. Both Gamle Kirkeplass and Bragernes Square were constructed with wide, open spaces which serve as firebreaks to prevent a repetition of the city fire of 1866.

Between the Science Park (Strømsø) and Drammen Park (Bragernes) there will be a new pedestrian bridge called Ypsilon (built in Sandnessjøen by Ruukki).
