This is a rare opportunity to see what a wood-built stave church looked like, even if it's merely a mocked-up version. In the Middle Ages, Norway had a total of 750 stave churches, but only 30 are still standing. Architecturally, these churches were unique, with their "dragon heads," carved doorways, and staves or vertical planks. The original stave church was constructed in Fortun in Sogn in 1150 and moved to Fantoft in 1883 at a point 5km (3 miles) south of Bergen. Regrettably, a self-styled Satanist burned it to the ground on June 6, 1992. As of 2007, Varg Vikernes was serving a 21-year jail sentence for murder and arson. The present church is an exact duplication of the original. Adjacent to the church is a large cross from 1050, which was moved here from Sola in Rogaland.
