Gamlehaugen, Bergen, Norway

The statue of King Haakon VII of Norway in the park of Gamlehaugen was unveiled on 25 November 1955, 50 years after King Haakon VII's arrival in Kristiania (now Oslo).

All the photos were taken during a visit to Gamlehaugen in September 2005. After Prime Minister Christian Michelsen's death in 1925 the Gamlehaugen estate became the Norwegian king's official residence in Bergen, in September 2005.
