About Old Stavanger, Stavanger
Old Stavanger creates a 18th century mood with 173 wooden houses all painted white from the said era, neatly lined along the street. The sight is pretty overwhelming as you walk through the cobbled lanes and find yourself transported to the times that are long gone. Lovely creepers and flowers in full bloom in front of the houses add to the charisma of this place.
Old Stavanger is the conserved part of a much larger town that was razed off old buildings after World War II, to be replaced with new and modern architecture. Just these 173 houses were left and today they make for a delightful “fairy-tale” experience.
This entire section of the town is impeccably maintained and every house exhibits a distinct character mostly because these are privately owned and occupied. Most of the houses are white in colour and make for a cute show. It also figures in the UN world Heritage sites.
