Stavanger is he fourth largest city in Norway with a population of 120000 people. The population is growing very fast due to the high standard of life here and the multitude of jobs well paid, waiting for immigrants. It seems that in the city ar living about 50000 expats, most of them working in Oil and Gas Industry.
You may find here a lot of museums and the oldest Cathedral in Norway. In fact the year when the Cathedral has been built (1125) become the year when Stavanger is considered founded.
The Climate in Stavanger is strange for all the other Europeans. In the summer the temperature may rich 30 degrees Celsius and in the coldest days (few only in February) the temperature could drop at -10.
The thermometer I have on my window here in shadow is showing 5-10 deg in the winter time and 10-20 deg during the spring/summer.
It seems that Stavanger has passed with the right foot in 2008...The city was chosen to be the "European Capital of Culture".

The second time I have been there only for a day. I have met a very good old friend and we have spent a good part of the night in the old pubs around the port.

Anyway, I came back in 2007 and I've been living here until the beginning of 2011. I have to recognize that I have enjoyed almost every moment in that place and I am sure that I have seen more places than the common-locals.
You'll find some tips about all those places in my page about Stavanger, please feel free to ask me if you want to know more.
