Stavanger by night... taken across Breiavannet - the lake that is at hte heart of Stavanger
Small wooden houses - typical of the old traditional houses that you can still find in the center of Stavanger.
The town has North Europes best preserved wooden houses, there are more than 150 houses that were built at the end of the 1700's and in the 1800's. Today the houses are mostly privately owned and used as homes - some houses are owned by the city council.
If you go to this site (courtesy of a local newspaper), you can take your own virtual tour of Stavanger.

Of course there are also tonnes of hotels - but they're easy to find (and expensive) so I haven't bothered with them here.
OTHER USEFUL STUFF:
Stavanger library is several things in one, it has foreign newspapers available if you want news from home, there is free internet access (you might have to wait your turn to get online - but at least there's no charge), the buidling also houses the local cinema and several other things (for more info see: http://www.stavanger.kommune.no/solvberg/html/english.html).
