The Borgund Stave Church is unusual to say the least and is nothing like anything I have seen anywhere else in the world. It is situated in a pleasant picturesque valley off the main road and is certainly an interesting piece of architecture.
It claims to be over 800 years old and one must ask how come it is still standing considering that it is made of wood! The community has certainly come together to preserve this magnificent example of an iconic church from a bygone era.
Not being religious did not detract from the thrill of admiring such a structure and I am extremely glad that I saw it. Wonder what it looks like in winter, covered in snow? Must be absolutely beautiful.
