When you think of Norway, couple of things that come to mind are fjords, blonde people and vikings…probably not fairy tale architecture.
Below, you’ll discover photographs of Norwegian architecture in the countryside that appears like it was taken straight from a fairy tale. The architectural styles range from Stave churches, which were built during the Middle Ages, to ghostly natural waterfalls and traditional wooden houses constructed in the Norwegian vernacular style (byggeskikk) during the 19th century.
Tell us which of photos you think wouldn’t be perfectly placed within a fairy tale, and as always, feel free to submit your own photos of Norway.
