STAVE CHURCHES

Stave churches (stavkirke) – characteristic wooden churches located in Norway dating back from the tenth to the thirteenth century when the Christian faith was mingled with the beliefs in pagan Viking gods. The corpus of the construction is the skeletal structure composed of vertical earth-bound posts which are concatenated by long planks. Planks applied vertically form the walls of the church. Churches are characterized by steep roofs covered with shingles. Ridges are usually tipped by sculptures of dragons. Stave churches are one of the oldest wooden monuments in Europe. There is also one stave church in Poland. It is the Wang Temple in Karpacz that was relocated from Norwegian town – Vang in 1842.

STAVE CHURCH IN KAUPANGER (KAUPANGER STAVKIRKE)

Stave church in Kaupanger (Kaupanger stavkirke) – one of the largest stave churches in the region. The construction of the temple is supported by 22 staves (large bearing columns) – the most among all the stave churches in Norway. The church was built in 1190 and its original medieval design has been preserved to this day.

FJÆRLAND – NORWEGIAN CAPITAL OF BOOKS


Fjærland, Norway

One of the most beautiful villages in the region as well as one of the most authentic and unspoiled by modernity. It was the last village in the vicinity that was connected to the road network (in 1994). Old wooden houses upon Fjærlandsfjorden with mountains in the background contribute to the unforgettable scenery. It is not the only attraction of the village. Fjærland is considered the capital of books in Norway because of an unusual accumulation of bookshops and the used book seller’s. Quite a surprising attraction are self-serviced unattended book stands where buyers have an opportunity of selecting books an settling the payment to a tin box which is placed on the stand.
