Or Stavanger in spring. Whatever you prefer.
I spent last weekend visiting friends in Stavanger. We got to do a quick boat trip in the fjord and were lucky to have the nicest weather. Today I’m going to show how pretty the old part of Stavanger is. Stavanger takes picturesque in a whole new level.
Small wooden white houses, very well-preserved, are full blooming this time of year. During my walk, I saw people talking care of the flowers and the houses. There’s a ton of work and laws, as far as I know, making sure that this part of the city looks that way.
If you ever find yourself in the old part of Stavanger, there’s not much more to do other that look around you and take the beauty in. Also, you’ll want to take as many photos as you can.
You may also find yourself daydreaming about that perfect Scandinavian white house with the pops of color. I did and now I desperately want a green door or a red one and as many colorful flowers as possible.
The other thing that I want? A small garden with a view. If only I didn’t kill any plant in my possession.
As I mentioned, there’s not much more to do in this part of the city. There’s a cute little coffee place and two or three shops selling overpriced ceramic art. But that shouldn’t deter you from visiting!
In case you’re wondering, it was pure chance I color matched my surroundings.
What do you think? Is Stavanger in your travel list yet?
More from Stavanger soon! Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and watch the stories for some live updates from my trips.
