POULSBO

Poulsbo, Washington, with a population of 9,775, is located in the northern part of Kitsap County and is 4.5 square miles in area. Liberty Bay, originally called Dog Fish Bay, and the majestic, snow-peaked Olympic Mountains to the west induced the Scandinavians to settle in Poulsbo because the area was so similar to the fjords of Norway.

 Often referred to as "Little Norway", Poulsbo is the site ot the annual MAY VIKING FEST. Come join the fun!

Today Poulsbo is a thriving community with many amenities. With its picturesque downtown core of rosemaled storefronts and shopping areas at Poulsbo Village, along Viking Avenue, and in College Market Place, Poulsbo offers much to citizens and guests alike. These include several beautiful parks, a boardwalk along Liberty Bay, the Valborg Oyen Public Library, three marinas, interesting gift shops, delicious bakeries, and panoramic views of Liberty Bay and the Olympic Mountains.

Liberty Bay and Olympic Mountains provide a dramatic background for this famous city located between Seattle-Winslow ferry terminus and the Hood Floating bridge, seven teen miles north of Bremerton

  1. I like American postcards very much. I collect them all the time and hope to have a postcard from every state.

  2. Chyba nie mam jeszcze żadnej kartki z tego stanu... w ogóle zdobywanie nowych stanów w tym roku poszło zupełnie w odstawkę i tylko jedną kartkę otrzymałam ze Stanów, a nie! dwie, bo ostatnio na PC otrzymałam jedną ;)
