PICTURES from STAVANGER

Stavanger the Oil capitol of Norway, only a short distance away from the most the spectacular sceneries. You can reach a deep fjord, a wind blown island, or an endless white sandy beach. In Stavanger, you will find all the advantages and charm of a small town; small wooden houses lining narrow streets and alleys, lots of pleasant shops, Yet Stavanger is also a modern, lively place of culture, a selection of restaurants and cafes to satisfy all tastes and styles, and nightlife that includes the most hectic nightclubs.

 The Norwegian Petroleum Museum  
The Norwegian Petroleum Museum In Stavanger, you will find all the advantages and charm of a small town. The fish pier with live catches and small boats along the harbor offering freshly caught shrimps, crabs and lobsters.

Yet another resource from under the sea - oil has brought the development of the town even further these last 30 years. The Norwegian Petroleum Museum was opened on 20 May 1999 and its unusual architecture has made it a new, exciting landmark in the Port of Stavanger.
