Bærums Verk, Norway
Living HistoryThis former ironworks, located west of Oslo, is now a charming little village that still retains the air from its bygone days.
Picturesque cottages that used to house workers now house cafés, galleries, and museums, and the foundry itself poses as a small shopping centre.
Bærums Verk also features the oldest pub in Norway that's still in use. Værtshuset Bærums Verk dates from 1640 and still serves punters on a daily basis.
