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.

 Landfalløya Old Bridge (Old Island)  
Landfalløya, Landfaloeya Gamle Landfalløya was a separate district just outside town, a place where neighbourhood farmers would trade. The first bridge to the island was built in 1867 when Randsfjord Railway was connected to Drammen. The old bascule mechanism from this bridge can still be seen. At the end of the bridge is Fløia, an old stately home from 1847.

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