Norway - Alesund


Janet in Norway sent me this city scape view of Alesund. She mentions that the whole town burnt down in 1904 and was rebuilt in 3-4 years of stone, brick and mortar in Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) the architectural style of the time. Before the fire most of the buildings were made of wood.  From this image and others I have found it looks like most of the city is surrounded by water.  This is another nice image of the city at sunset.  Thanks again Janet for the lovely card :)
