I’m writing this post almost a year later after visiting Stavanger. Going through my photos this morning, I realized that I’ve spoken a lot about my hike to Kjeragbolten but never shared any photos from Stavanger. Last summer, I spent a day in Stavanger drinking copious amount of coffee in cosy little Scandi cafes, visit a few museums and just wander around the city.
Stavanger is very small, and I was a little surprised to read that it’s the 4th biggest city in Norway. Well, I guess as someone who was born and raised in a big city and lived in London for half her life, all of the Norwegian cities would seem rather small. But no matter the size, they all have that Scandinavian feeling – hygge that I absolutely love.
My favourite part of Stavanger is definitely the ‘Old Stavanger’, or Gamle Stavanger as they say in Norwegian. It’s a historic area of the city consisting of 173 wooden houses originally built in the 18th century. Most of them are small, white cottages.
And here are my favourite images from my stroll in Old Stavanger.
