What people are saying:

The city of Bergen was founded by King Olaf in 1070. Bergen, then the capital, had a monopoly on the fish trade. In the 12th century, King SVERRE ordered the area of Brigan to be used as residence for aristocratic merchants; in 1350, the powerful Hanseatic League forces extended into this area, and they used the port to control the trade of various foods and raw materials, and moved along in Brigan. The narrow streets and the port are equal to each other to build residential houses. The most common feature of these houses is a three-story wooden building with a gable facade. The outside is connected by wooden boards to form a long building, and they collectively surround a courtyard. At the back of the courtyard, there is a small warehouse built of stone. In addition to storing food, it also has a fire prevention function.
