Stavanger-Kristiansand

Day 6: Stavanger-Kristiansand

Due to the flight arriving and departing from Oslo, we decided to visit this part of Norway from which I barely found any information and wanted to see if it really was because it was not worth it or because given the great variety of visits this was forgotten, but unfortunately I found that it did not have great appeal.

Sverd i fjell


It is a monument located 6 km from Stavanger formed by 3 swords of 10 meters high.

They commemorate the historic battle of Hafrsfjord that took place there in the year 872 in which King Harald Fairhair gathered all of Norway under his crown.

The monument symbolizes peace, unity and freedom.

It is a rather curious monument and that draws attention for the greatness of the swords and is located in a place with very nice views.

Kristiansand

The country's fifth largest city, located in the south of Norway, is one of the Norwegians summer places.

Thanks to its location in the summer months, high temperatures are reached for Norwegians and they can enjoy the beaches that are both in the city and its surroundings.

It is a small city without great attraction and we use it to stop between Stavanger and Oslo.
