"Swords in stone" Top 5 Page for this destination Hafsfjord Tip by Rusket
Hafsfjord, Stavanger: 3 reviews and 4 photos
While you are taking a nice bath in Møllebukta, you can admire the three swords in stone, a monument by Fritz Røed commemorating the battle of Hafrsfjord in 872 AD that led to Norway becoming a united kingdom. Actually, King Harald Hårfagre (Fairheaded Harald) was about 10 years old by that time, meaning that the battle, which is now thought to have been the last uprising from his enemies, must have taken place a lot closer to year 900 AD.
Buses no 5A and 5B every 15th minute from stops no 19 and 26.
