A slightly smaller city than Bergen, Stavanger was an important early center of the Christian church and later flourished in the early 1800s as a center for the fishing trade. In the 20th century fisheries, shipping and later petroleum made the city boom. In the historic heart, visit the medieval cathedral (the only cathedral in Norway to retain all its original features,) and explore cobbled streets and attractive clapboard homes. There are several museums showcasing everything from archaeology to ethnographic exhibits, but the city’s most popular is the unique and architecturally impressive Petroleum Museum.
