Its harbours is used by everything from small pleasure vessels to cruise ships and cargo vessels, and is the base of many of the country's fishing vessels.

The city of Bergen is thought to have been founded by king Olav Kyrre, son of Harald Hardråde, in 1070 AD,[8] celebrating it's 900th anniversary in 1970. It is considered to have replaced Trondheim as Norway's capital in 1217, and that Oslo became de jure capital in 1299.[9] Towards the end of the 13th century, Bergen became one of the Hanseatic League's most important bureau cities.[10] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 540 pixelsFull resolution (3701 × 2497 pixels, file size: 11. ...

The main reason for Bergen's importance was the trade with dried cod from the northern Norwegian coast,[11] which started around 1100 CE. By the late 1300s, Bergen had established itself as the center of the trade in Norway.[12] The Saxon Hanseatic merchants lived in their own separate quarter of town, where Middle Saxon (“Middle Low German”) was used, enjoying exclusive rights to trade with the northern fishermen that each summer sailed to Bergen.[13] Today, Bergen's old quayside, Bryggen is on UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites.[14] For other uses, see Saxon (disambiguation). ...

In 1349, the Black Death was introduced to Norway by the crew of an English ship arriving in Bergen.[15] In the 15th century the city was several times attacked by the Victual Brothers,[16] and in 1429 they succeeded in burning the royal castle and much of the city. In 1536, the king was able to force the Saxon merchants to become Norwegian citizens or return home, heralding a decline in the Saxon influence. In 1665, the city's harbour was the site of the bloody Battle of Vågen, between English ships on the one side and Dutch ships supported by the city's garrison on the other.

In 1916 parts of the city centre were destroyed by a devastating fire, the last of many such fires throughout the city's history. During World War II, the city was occupied on the first day of the German invasion on April 9, 1940, after a brief fight between German ships and Norwegian coastal artillery. On April 20, 1944, during the German occupation, the Dutch cargoship Voorbode anchored off the Bergenhus Fortress, loaded with over 120 tons of explosives, blew up, killing at least 150 people and damaging historic buildings. The city was subject to some allied bombing raids, aiming at German naval installations in the harbour. Some of these led to civilian casualties numbering over 100.

Toponymy

The Norse forms of the name were Bergvin and Bjørgvin. The first element is berg (n) or bjørg (f), which translates to mountain. The last element is vin (f), which translates to pasture or meadow. The full meaning is then 'the meadow among the mountains'.[18] (A suitable name: Bergen is often called 'the city among the seven mountains'.) Old Norse is the Germanic language spoken by the inhabitants of Scandinavia and their overseas settlements during the Viking Age, until about 1300. ...


There are about one thousand names in Norway composed with the element -vin, which are pronounced with the second tone. The only exception[citation needed] is the name Bergen (which is pronounced with the first tone). The cause of this is probably the German influence in the city.


In 1918, there was a campaign to reintroduce the Norse form Bjørgvin as the name of the city. This was turned down - but as a compromise the name of the diocese was changed to Bjørgvin bispedømme.[19] Bjørgvin is a diocese in the Church of Norway. ...

The oldest remaining part of the city is on the north side of the bay of Vågen. Bryggen, the product of rebuilding after a fire in 1702, is in this area. The buildings that form Bryggen were done in the style of the medieval buildings that stood on the site prior to the fire.[10] Saint Mary's Church is the oldest building in Bergen, parts of it dating from around 1130.[10] The altar piece of the church is the oldest ornament preserved. It dates back to the Hanseatic period, probably the 15th century, when the church was used by the German hanseats as their parish church. Much of the interior was replaced during a restoration of the church in the second half of the 18th century.[10] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 461 pixelsFull resolution (1136 × 654 pixels, file size: 465 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File historyClick on a date/time to view the file as it appeared at that time. ...

Climate

Bergen has been nicknamed The City of Rain for the plentiful rainfall it's renowned for - annual precipitation is 2250 mm (88 inches) on average.[34] This is because the city is surrounded by mountains that the clouds can not get over easily. Rain fell every day between October 29, 2006 and January 21, 2007, 85 consecutive days.[35] In the winter, Bergen is one of the warmest cities in Norway, thanks to the Gulf Stream; 10 °C and rain can happen in both January and July. The highest temperature ever recorded was 31.8 °C, a record that dates back to 1947.[36] The lowest ever recorded is -16.3 °C, in 1987.[37] Map of Norway. ...

The high amount of precipitation is often used in the marketing of the city, and figures to a degree on postcards sold in the city. For a period of time there were umbrella vending machines in the city, but these did not turn out to be a success.[38]

Damaged house after the 2005 slide

In recent years, precipitation and winds have increased in the city. In late 2005, heavy rains caused floods and several landslides, the worst of which killed three people on September 14. It is predicted by meteorologists that due to global warming, severe storms causing landslides and floods will become more powerful in the area and in surrounding counties in coming years. As a response, the municipality created a special 24-man rescue unit within the fire department in 2005, to future slides and other natural disasters,[40] and neighbourhoods considered at risk of slides were surveyed in 2006.[41] As of October 2007, the prediction has been supported by over 480 landslides in Hordaland county from the spring of '06 to the summer of '07. Most of the slides hit roads, but until October 2007, when a large rock dislodged and killed the driver of a car,[42] none of them caused damage to cars, buildings, or people.[43][44] Damaged house as of 2006 The Hatlestad Slide was a slide of mud and rock which occurred in the early morning of September 14, 2005 in a rural area in Bergen, Norway, as a result of heavy rainfall. ...

Another concern is the rising sea levels. Already today, Bryggen is regularly flooded at high tide, and it is feared that as sea levels rise, floods will become a major problem in Bergen. Floods will in the future reach the old fire station in Olav Kyrres Gate, as well as the railroad tracks leading out of the city.[45] It has therefore been suggested by among others Stiftelsen Bryggen, the foundation responsible for preserving the UNESCO site, that a sea wall, built so that it could be raised and lowered as demanded by the tides, be built outside the harbour to protect the city.[46]


Another effect of recent years' weather conditions in the area is that scepticism among Norwegians to global warming has been reduced.[47]

Buekorps are regarded with warmth by some, whilst others dislike it due to its militarised appearance or the dominant sound of the drumming.[98][99] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 694 × 600 pixelsFull resolution (1024 × 885 pixels, file size: 375 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) File historyClick on a date/time to view the file as it appeared at that time. ...

Football

Bergen has two professional football teams, Brann and Løv-Ham. Brann plays in the premier league,[103] while Løv-Ham plays in the first division.[104] Despite Løv-Ham playing in the 2nd highest level in Norwegian football, Brann is the only club to draw any considerable interest from the public. A common saying is "people from Bergen don't watch football, they watch Brann".[citation needed] The first Løv-Ham supporter group, Selskapsløvene (English: The Party Lions) was created as recently as December 2005.[105] Brann play their matches at Brann stadion, with a capacity of 17,824[106] as of June 2007, while Løv-Ham play their matches at Krohnsminde kunstgressbane, with a capacity of 3000, but an attendance record of 1051 in the league.[107] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 473 pixelsFull resolution (1200 × 709 pixels, file size: 476 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) Edited version of http://en. ...

Although Brann is one of the largest teams in Norway, the team has had limited success in the Premier League and the cup. They have won the cup six times, most recently in 2004. Brann won the Premier League in 1961/62 and then in 1963. The 1963 title was directly followed by the relegation of the team into the Second Division (today known as Adeccoligaen, the second highest level of Norwegian football). The team has won several silver and bronze medals since, but didn't win the league again until the 2007 season.[108] Despite, or perhaps because of the lack of league titles, the team is met with high expectations from the national and local press and the inhabitants of Bergen every year.[citation needed] The Norwegian Premier League is the top division for football (soccer) in Norway. ...

Dialect

Main article: Bergensk

Bergensk, or the Bergen dialect, is the dialect of Norwegian spoken in Bergen. It is easy for Norwegians to recognise, as it is very distinguishable from the other dialects in Hordaland. Like almost all Norwegian dialects, Bergensk cannot be said to be either Bokmål or Nynorsk. While the vocabulary shows many traits of both Bokmål and Nynorsk, it has many characteristics that are not covered by any of these written languages. Bergensk is a dialect used in Bergen, Norway. ... BokmÃ¥l (lit. ... Nynorsk (literally New Norwegian) is one of the two officially sanctioned orthographic standards of the Norwegian language, the other being BokmÃ¥l. ...


Foreigners, such as the Low German speaking merchants of the Hanseatic League who lived in Bergen in the period from about 1350 to 1750, has had a profound impact on the dialect.[109] Bergen being the major Norwegian city during the Dano-Norwegian union from 1536 to 1814 led to Bergensk absorbing more of the Danish than other Norwegian dialects. Many, but not all, influences from these languages since spread from Bergen to parts of or the whole of Norway.[109] Low German (also called Niederdeutsch, Plattdeutsch or Plattdüütsch) is a name for the regional language varieties of the West Germanic languages spoken mainly in Northern Germany where it is officially called Niederdeutsch (Low German), and in Eastern Netherlands where it is officially called Nedersaksisch (Low Saxon). Low refers to... Carta marina of the Baltic Sea region (1539). ... Denmark–Norway is the historiographical name for a former political entity, union, consisting of the kingdoms of Denmark and Norway, including the Norwegian dependencies of Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. ...


The female grammatical gender disappeared in the 16th century, probably due to influence from Danish,[109] making Bergensk one of the very few dialects in Norway with only two grammatical genders. All others, excepting sociolects in other Norwegian cities, have three. The Rs are uvular trills, as in French. It probably spread to Bergen (and Kristiansand) some time in the 18th century, overtaking the alveolar trill in the time span of 2 to 3 generations.[109] Due to an improved literacy rate, Bergensk got influenced by riksmål and bokmål in the 19th and 20th centuries. This led to large parts of the German inspired vocabulary disappearing and pronunciations shifting slightly towards East Norwegian.[109] In linguistics, grammatical gender is a morphological category associated with the expression of gender through inflection or agreement. ... In linguistics, a sociolect is the language spoken by a social group, social class or subculture. ... The uvular trill is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages. ...
