The view from St Olaf's

…is the most beautiful little city ever! The old town is almost 1000 years old: partly surrounded by castle walls and with old churches and pretty building doted around its cobbled streets.

We climbed all the way up St Olaf’s which was exhausting and the steps were rather treacherous. Worth it for the view though! St Olaf’s was the tallest building in the world in the 16th-17th century!

St Olaf's

The old centre is made up of little coffee shops and patisseries, craft shops (selling things like lace, felt, marzipan, knitted clothes, cotton, porcelain and glass) and restaurants. All the places were so quaint and all decorated in the same homely way. The shops sold things that were clearly made by little old ladies in their spare time and most of the cafes sold home made cakes. Everything about the town was just…cute.
