Homes of Old Stavanger

Homes of Old Stavanger

After staying in the town of Odda, I moved onto the next city on my Norway trip. Stavanger is a beautiful port city and is one of Norway's oldest cities. Stavanger is known for its classic wooden homes dating back from the 18th century. The section of Old Stavanger in particular has clean, white painted houses stacked row after row along sloped cobblestone streets. Bright accents and pops of color from the doors, window panes, and plants livened up the otherwise stark white wood-slatted homes. 

The consistency of white throughout the streets of Old Stavanger is laudable. Even with white house after white house, there were still interesting elements that drew me in such as different colors and textures that made each house unique in its own right.

 

An emerald door here, a color-blocked wall there, and some windows lined with flowers to top it all off.

Old Stavanger is the absolute epitome of quaint and cozy.
