Borgund Stavechurch
Lærdal - Norway

Borgund Stavechurch a triple nave stave church and is Norways best preserved church. The church was probably built
in the end of the 12th century, and has not changes structure or had a major reconstruction since that date. The
church site shows evidence of a previous building, which can point to a earlier church or perhaps an old heathen temple
that had been taken into use as a church. The interior of the church, except for the pulpit and the altarpiece, is mainly
free from the after reformatory decorations seen in most other stave churches. An authentic medieval square shaped
baptismal font made of soapstone is still a part of the interior.

9/10. What most amazes me is that the stave churches are 100% wooden structures built in a wet enviroment, and still they survive for so long.

If we can only keep those "#£@€€][{¤%#&%¤/"!#"! satanists away from them....
