Alesund, Norway

Alesund, Norway, often called the country's most beautiful city, is laid out across three islands positioned at the entrance to a large fjord.

The city's economic heritage is fishing, and the impressive fishing fleet in the harbor is one of Norway's largest.

With its colorful 18th century wooden buildings, historic churches and museums, and scenery that dazzles the eye, it's easy to see why Alesund is such a popular tourist destination.

I spotted this on a wall along a narrow street in the city center; I have no idea what it's for.

Alesund, like many Norwegian cities is quite hilly, and the local streets here remind me of San Francisco, California or Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.
