About Stavanger, Norway

With a history dating back to the Vikings in the 12th century, Stavanger is one of the oldest and most important cities in Norway. Located on a peninsula in southwest Norway, Stavanger’s mild climate and rich natural resources have made it an important center for tourism and industry. Thanks to a 20th-century oil boom off Stavanger’s coastline, the city has grown into a vital economic center and has helped Norway become the world’s third-largest exporter of oil.
