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.

 Union Brygge  
Union Brygge Drammen is situated in a beautiful valley, on the shores of a wide, clean river abounding in fish. In the middle of Bragernes district is a cultural centre surrounding beautiful Drammens Theatre, the pride of Drammen.

The heart of the city is Bragernes Torg. Bragernes Torg provides the setting for numerous events, especially in summer when a colourful, fascinating market sells agricultural produce, flowers and plants.

Today the traditional industries have more or less disappeared, and many of the former factory sites are now being converted into residential areas Union Brygge, and business parks.
