I visited: Haugesund and Bergen

Haugesund is a small coastal town in the region of Vestlandet interesting for the beautiful typical houses and the harbor, one day is enough to visit ( if you do not make trips to the fjords ). Bergen is a beautiful city where modern and traditional architecture blend together, 2 days are enough to visit ( if you do not make trips to the fjords ). There are beautiful panoramic views along the transfer route by bus and by boat that connects the two cities. Nature is certainly the most interesting part of a trip to Norway but my journey has been focused for the short time available and for economic reasons only to visit the cities and not to do cruises where you can admire the fjords

I want to point out the major tourist attractions
