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.

 Marienlyst Stadion  
Marienlyst Stadion Marienlyst Stadion has been the home ground of Strømsgodset since 1967. The pitch was opened in 1924, and was the home ground of Drafn, Skiold and Drammens Ballklubb. The Norway national under-21 football team has played eighteen games Marienlyst, making it their most-used venue.

There are new plans to expand and rebuild the main stand. The old Turf (Gamle Gress) is part of a sport complex, with the adjacent bandy field (artificial ice) and the athletics stadium next door as well as the sports hall for indoor athletics and handball (Drammeshallen).
