Old Stavanger Reviews
My friend and I got a driving tour of Old Town from a Stavanger native. I had walked through here years ago, it was nice to come back although not on foot this time. more »
クルーズ船から降りてすぐのところに旧市街があります。火事で焼けることがなかった街並みは、全て木造で、住んできた人々と街を守る努力が偲ばれました。 more »The Old Town is just off the cruise ship. The streets that were not burned in the fire were all made of wood, and efforts were made to protect the people who lived there and the city.
