19 Music Pavilion at Byparken in Bergen, Norway

Byparken is a large city park located at the west end of Lille Lungegårdsvannet. The rectangular greenspace was created in 1865, a decade after a fire ravished over 180 homes in the neighborhood. The centerpiece is this lovely cast-iron Music Pavilion with Moorish details. Musikkpaviljongen was gifted to the city in 1888. Also admire the life-size bronze statue by Ingebrigt Vik of Edvard Grieg. This native of Bergen was a successful classical piano composer during the late 19th century. In the background is the former Telegraph Building. The first floor is now the Telegrafen Shopping Center.
