City privileges

Any densely populated area with more than 5000 inhabitants can call itself a city in Norway. Bryne, with 7789 inhabitants, was proclaimed a city 1 january 2001. Unlike some of the other small norwegian towns Bryne actual looks like a city ;-)

Bryne is the administrative center of the municipality Time, and is situated in Jæren, Rogaland, half an hour drive south of Stavanger. Communications are good: The main southern railway line runs through the town as does road no 44. Sola Airport Stavanger is 25 minutes away by car.

Green lungs

Although small, Bryne has one of the better football teams in Norway, they have played in the norwegian premier league. The signpost on the picture shows the way to the football stadium where Bryne plays their home matches, appr. 10 minutes to walk from downtown.

Another of the signs points to a very nice walking area along the river.

This green area is less than a five minutes walk away from the railway station

Welfare services

Elderly and disabled persons are well taken care of. This building contains apartments for people who can take care of themselves, but need some assistance. It is specially adjusted for wheelchair access. Right across the street is a welfare center and rooms / appartments for people who need daily care. My parents moved into one of these apartments when my mother became dependent on a walking frame. The complex is close to downtown Bryne and shopping centers, which enables the residents to keep on with their lives without beeing dependant on too much help.
