Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
We discovered this beautiful church, while we were just driving around:
The Viking and I had seen a stave church earlier this year in Hahenklee, but this was far more impressive!
According to Wikipedia, the Heddal stave church
is a triple nave stave church and is Norway’s largest stave church. It was constructed at the beginning of the 13th century. After the reformation the church was in a very poor condition, and a restoration took place during 1849 – 1851. However, because those who did it didn’t have the necessary knowledge and skills, yet another restoration was necessary in the 1950s.
You have to pay to see the interior of the church; unfortunately, we didn’t have any Norwegian money with us and they didn’t accept the euro.
