Norway's black-gold treasure chest

There’s way more to Stavanger than a hunt for black gold, although the oil capital of Norway is not as popular of a destination as Oslo and Bergen. The city still retains some of its sleepy, provincial charm, but it’s now modern and cosmopolitan, and chock-full of nostalgic attractions and worthwhile treasures. Gamle Stavanger, with its winding streets and wooden houses, is still the main tourist draw. The fjords and scenic nature, however, are second-to-none, and there’s enough entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
