  • Go on the small ferry from Sol Vorn village located in East back the KNU lustra, Italy fjord Sognefjord, climb the slope 15 minutes on foot from the port side of the stave church is to reach. One of the oldest churches in stave churches in Norway. Mysterious sculptures was designed for grass like animals like deer in the Church wall planks and logs into a snake bite, the vine it is decorated. In very old church entrance door key.... this time. Internal and cross timber Church roofs leaning to support is book, the altar and walls were painted with paint.

  • We found the designation of this church on the site to Visit Norway and we did not miss the opportunity to visit it. A magical place not to be missed in terms of uniqueness. The town of Ornes there is a small ferry that leaves from the small village of Solvorn, and 20 minutes you reach the other side, better to leave your car in Solvorn although then the climb to the Church is a bit tiring but still all on paved road to nowhere.

Really good, all in English.
