Between 1500 and 1600 the village of Bud was the biggest city between Trondheim and Bergen.
In 1533 the archbishop Olav Engelbreksson called for a big meeting in Bud. The norwegians felt threatened by the danish and the reformation, and the mighty men of Norway met at Bud to discuss the future.
A sculpture was erected in Bud to commemorate this meeting. The germans took down the stone during the second World War, but the norwegians erected it again when the war was over.
Walk around and take a look at the harbour in Bud. Here are many beautiful houses! In some of them you can stay for the night, and in others you can have a great meal. Fresh from the sea right outside.
Bud church is a cruciformed church that was built in the 18th century.
The germans removed the tower of the church during the second World War, because it was obstructing the view from their coastal fortress at Ergan.
The locals kept the tower, and put it back on the church when the war was over.
What to buy: We raided the local supermarket at about half past one in the afternoon and left with the food stuffs listed on the receipt - wienerbrod, safari kjeks, tortillachips, brekkbonner ...
What to pay: As you can see we paid 184 NOK.
Bud lies right next to the open sea, and it can be quite windy and chilly here. Be sure to bring warm clothes so you dont have to freeze.
Rain clothes are also good to bring. Even if it is blue skies and sunny, the weather can change in a second in our beautiful country! ;)
Also remember to bring enough memory card and batteries to your camera, as there are plenty of photo opportunities around every corner.
