The wooden Norwegian church was first errected in 1868 for Norwegian sailors that brought wooden props for the coal mines. It reminds me so much of Iceland, same kind of style.

This is a beautiful Church, looks small from outside but very loaded inside. When we visited there was an ongoing exhibition which was very nice and the prices were very reasonable. Apparently they have lots of these kinds of exhibitions throughout the year.
