Old stave church

On our way from Oslo to the coast, we passed some nice scenery in the Norwegian countryside, making several stops where we saw fit. One of those stops was here - at this old and very well preserved stave church.

 

A stave church is a medieval wooden church with a post and beam construction related to timber framing.

As an interesting fact: all of the surviving stave churches except one are or were in Norway :)

 

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting :)
