  • Everyone should visit the old Stavanger where workers in the canning industry lived Great old homes that are renovated
    View original
  • Here you go between the small houses that are so well tended, the old style is preserved, and especially in the summer by nice weather, there will be extra nice experience. This old town is really a diamond in Stavanger
