I was sure I’d love Ålesund as soon as I saw the vivid architecture. Buildings details and colorful ornaments draw a lot of attention. Actually, this is how Alesund is known: the Art Nouveau town, which was destroyed by a fire in 1904. 

We reached Norway through Ålesund and this is a good starting point to see the Sunnmøre area and Geirangerfjord, the Unesco site.
