Aker Brygge ("the Aker quay") is a huge shopping mall and area for restaurants. It's situated in the Oslo harbour area. From 1854-1982 this was an engineering workshop and shipbuilding yard. In 1986 the first part of Aker Brygge was ready, and later it has expanded several times. The area has approx. 40 restaurants, many shops, a cinema, a comedy theater and many apartments. The buildings have a marine look to them. I wouldn't say they're beautiful, but it's still an interesting place.
In the summer weekends especially, people are swarming here, eating out with their friends and collegues. When the weather is nice, like it was this Saturday, it's great to sit outdoors enjoying a meal (and a cigarette). No smoking is allowed inside. Photos: by Lothiane
We have run this blog for quite a while, and feel like we need a break to do other things. We will still post photos, but not as often as before. Hopefully you will continue to visit us from time to time. :-)
