First I thought I want to move to Tromsø, but then we came to Stavanger. It is the third largest city and metropolitan area in Norway, and the administrative centre of Rogaland county (southwest). Its official founding year is 1125, the year the Stavanger Cathedral was completed. Stavangers core is to a large degree 18th- and 19th-century wooden houses that are protected and considered part of the city's cultural heritage.
Those houses are the first thing I saw from the ship and immediately fell in love with that sight - I was so sure it is a WHS site and was sending this for my collection lol. Because you can't really grasp it by looking at this postcard (its still the most representative I could find) I will again post a photo of my own, taken from the ship's deck.
