Dubbed as the ‘Norwegian Oil Capital’ and an international military stronghold of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (or NATO), Stavanger is a queer mix of scenic beauty and antiquity in Norway. It was founded in 1125 AD with the completion of Stavanger Cathedral, and quickly rose to prominence as a focal point of church administration and an important south-west coast market town. Fast forward to 2016, and you would it dotted with a combination of some 12th to 15th century cathedrals (central to which is St. Svithun's Cathedral that has remained almost the same since 14th century) and several 200-years old wooden houses. You can also enjoy skiing and snowboarding during the winters, or relax on its seaside or five-lake strong lakeside during the summers near the city. For those looking forward to a more subtle experience related to music, the Stavanger International Jazz Festival (MaiJazz) and the International Chamber Music Festival are a must-visit during May and August respectively.
First built in 1125 AD and subjected to fires and renovations, the Stavanger Cathedral is indeed the best preserved medieval cathedral in Norway. This stone cathedral is what you’d call a near-perfect seamless integration of Romanesque and Gothic signatures vis-à-vis its immaculate stained glasswork and baroque pulpits inside.Gamle Stavanger (Old Stavanger)
A hundred years back, Stavanger's identity proportionately correlated itself to canning foods, fisheries and shipping. Old Stavanger is a faithful blend and reminiscence of antiquity and elegance of those golden eras, albeit in a subtler manner. Particularly mesmerizing are its breathtaking arrays of nearly 250 whitewashed wooden cottages and a representation of a hundred year old factory (in the Norwegian Canning Museum nearby) that are linked through some antique cobblestone walkways to yield a picture-perfect backdrop.Norsk Oljemuseum (Norwegian Oil Museum)
The Stavanger Oil Museum is a delicate alliance of history, technology and industrial identity inside a quirky architectural marvel that looks like an oil rig from the outside and has graduated to be a proud landmark of the city. It clinically focuses on Stavanger’s offshore oil industry through its superb display of submersibles, drilling equipment, oil platform simulations, archival representations and an exhaustive coverage of audio-visual presentations.
