Norwegian Stave Chruch

Stave churches are wooden churches from the Middle Ages in the Scandinavia, particularly Norway. Many of the Norwegian stave churches are well-preserved and can still be found throughout the country. I find the architecture of these churches to be some of the most intriguing in Europe. The pictures here show Gol Stave Church and Garmo Stave Church, which I have visited.
