BORGUND & LILLEHAMMER

Today we took long journey through the Central Norway to Lillehammer. Our first photo stop was Borgund Stave Church. It was built around 1180 and dedicated to the Apostle Andrew. The church is exceptionally well preserved and is the most distinctive stave church in Norway. Some of its finest features are the lavishly carved portals and the crosses and carvings of dragon’s heads on the roofs. We made few more stops around other nice stave churches before we have reached our final destination Lillehammer. Norway’s oldest ski resort is located on the northern shore of Mjøsa, Norway’s largest lake. Lillehammer is world famous for the Olympic Winter Games in 1994. So of course we have visited the Olympic Park with Håkon Hall and Lysgårdsbakkene Hoppanlegg which become the hallmark of town.
