Jugendstil in Aalesund

aalesund Posted by Picasa

Aalesund is a unique place in Norway, as it was totally destroyed at the turn of the last century and rebuilt in the Jugendstil (Art Noveau) style. We had a wonderful time wondering through the streets taking photos (of course). Then it was time for cakes - special Aalesund ones, though I never caught the name, which were delicious pastries with raisins, custard and cinnamon. The Jugendstil centre on Apotekergate was brilliant, preserved as it was meant to be.
