Norwegian architecture taken out of fairy tales


Borgund Stave Church

It was built sometime between 1180 and 1250 AD with later additions and restorations. Its walls are formed by vertical wooden boards or staves. The four corner posts were connected to one another by ground sills, resting on a stone foundation. The rest of the staves then rise from the ground sills, each stave notched and grooved along the sides so that they lock into one another, forming a sturdy wall. (image source)

  1. Fascinating! I gifted myself a trip to Norway on my 50th birthday, and had a fine time experiencing the midnight sun all the way to Kirkenes. I laud the determination of folks living in such challenging environment, and admire all the wonderful things they have achieved.

    • noong sa PAL pa ako nagakaroon ako ng chance na makarating sa Germany, kinapos kami ng time kaya hindi na kami natuloy sa Norway at Holland…sayang…ang ganda ng Germany, may nakita rin akong houses tulad ng nasa blog dahil we stayed sa countryside, hindi sa suburbs like Frankfurt…camping tour ang ginawa namin….
