    The great thing about this is that it is already as old stave church. There is already so much has happened ... the guide tells about it, point to things and the history comes to life. Very worth it.

    I can't say that this surprises stave. But, nevertheless, caught near should try to visit. From the opposite bank every 30 minutes goes a little paromchik. To stavkirke leads moderately steep climb on asphalt road past the Apple and Crimson. In late July-early August enjoy the fragrance of speljushhej raspberries. And Yes, here it is substantially cheaper than on the opposite shore and tastier-25 vs. 40 NOK per serving of raspberry. Stave itself is not very surprising after already seen. She is small and very ancient. Antiquity makes it unique as location and threaded jewelry.

    OK, so this is reputedly the oldest Stave church in the country, and the only one Unesco listed, and impressive it certainly is. Not easily accessed as it is across Sogn og Fjordane (Sognefjord) from ...  more »

    A incredible place! I wasn't so impressed of the church but the surrounding is breathtaking. I really recommend you to go to this place!

    A must see for everyone who loves history. The stave church is very well preserved. The main attraction are the Viking carvings from 11th century - these are incredible. We had a very good guide that explained everything and enjoyed our visit very much.

    One of the most beautiful stave churches. Extraordinary wooden carvings. Quiet rural area, great view over the Lustra fjord.
