    Stavanger is a colourful, very pretty fishing village on the southern tip of Norway.
    The petroleum museum at the port is recommended. 👩‍🌾

    With around 200,000 inhabitants, Norway's fourth largest city is on the one hand one of the oldest in which many old wooden houses are still reminiscent of the past, but on the other hand it is also one of the most modern thanks to the oil.
    Although a settlement on the site of today's Stavanger was mentioned as early as the 8th century, the city only entered the stage of history in 1125 with the construction of the cathedral and the transfer of the bishop's seat. The cathedral, originally built in the Anglo-Norman style, later rebuilt in the High Gothic style, still forms the center of the city today and is one of the most important medieval churches in the country. From there it is only a few steps to the Vågen harbor basin, which is rammed by old and new houses and where there is always a hustle and bustle in the water and on land. Here you should visit one of the restaurants or cafes, many of which have an open-air terrace.

    Afterwards you can stroll through Gamel Stavanger, an old town district consisting of 170 listed houses from the 18th and 19th centuries. All have been lovingly renovated and painted bright white. In the middle of this inhabited open-air museum is the Norks Hermetkkmuseum, which tells the story of canned fish production. From the middle of the 19th century Stavanger's canning factories were an important part of the economy and the city became known worldwide for its canned sardines.

    Stavanger is a lovely place. The oil industry is predominant. But there are great wooden houses to be seen in the old town and in the alleys. The street art is also very interesting.

    Stavanger is known and made rich through oil production. In the Oil Museum, which is highly recommended, you can learn a lot about oil production. There are also many exhibits to admire.

    Compared to other Norwegian cities, Stavanger is a modern city with industry. The focus is on oil production, hence the museum. Nevertheless, it is worth visiting the old town. Particularly noteworthy are the many monuments of people that are scattered all over the city.

    As with many other cities, the port is a certain attraction. You can linger here. There is gastronomy and there is always something new to discover.

    Part II
    Since others had already claimed the term "sardines" for themselves, there was a year-long legal dispute and the small canned fish were also sold as herring sardines or sprat sardines for a while. Salting, smoking, packaging, sealing everything was done by hand, in addition to the 50 canning factories there were many supplier companies and around two thirds of the working population were dependent on the sardines at the time. Skilled fingers placed the sprats in the small cans. The fastest manage to fit up to 20 of the small fish in a can in 5 seconds.

    The other face of Stavanger is that of a modern oil metropolis. Ever since huge oil deposits were discovered off the coast in the 1970s, the city has experienced an unprecedented construction boom that has seen prices skyrocket. Many of the international oil companies are based in Stavanger, and supplies to the oil rig are also coordinated from here. The Norwegian Oil Museum offers a very vivid insight into the formation and production of oil, that an oil platform was modeled and is also architecturally worth seeing.

    Very nice harbor. The Lysefjord can be explored from here with a boat tour.

    Ideal starting point to discover the Stavanger by foot, because most attractions are close to each other in the harbor. There is a tourist office on Strandkaien in the immediate vicinity of the harbor.

    Stavanger has a beautiful, well-kept old town. A stroll through the town is highly recommended, preferably when there is no cruise ship at anchor.
