Urnes Stavkirke

Picture 2007Urnes stavkirke er landets eldste og kan dateres helt tilbake til 1140 AC.
Kirken ligger høyt og fritt med utsyn over Lusterfjorden i Sogn & Fjordane.
Kirken ble først oppført som en privat ‘gårdskirke’, men ble senere oppgradert til en sognekirke. I 1979 ble Urnes Stavkirke oppført på UNESCO’s ‘Verdensarv’-liste.

Urnes Stavchurch is by far the oldest in the country and may be documented built in
1140 AC.  The church is situated on a hill overlooking the ‘Luster fjord’ in Sogn & Fjordane.
Firstly the church was probably buildt as a private farm church, but was later upgraded to serve as a ‘county church’. And in 1979 the church was included on UNESCO’s ‘World Heritage’-list.

    I’ve never been there. But I really love those Stavchurches.

      If you don’t mind narrow roads, you could go around Lusterfjord: Skjolden – Urnes on one side and Skjolden – Solvorn on the other side. Between Urnes and Solvorn there is a ferry taking cars as well as passengers.

  3. WOW! That is so cool 🙂 Visiting Norway is definitely on my bucket list! Great picture!

    I always wanted to go to Norway. Some day I go and perhaps see this great wonderful church on my own eyes. I will use your blog as guide!
