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.

 Stavanger Cathedral  
Aside from the Cathedral, the row of wharf warehouses fronting the harbour is Stavanger´s most outstanding architectural feature. In days past, the prominent gables of these houses lined the waterfront almost as far as eye could see 240 buildings at one time.

Some 60 remain under preservation order. The painstaking restoration work is an on-going process. Compared to the other major ports Bergen, Ålesund, Kristiansund and Trondheim.
