The Norwegian town of Stavanger is located on the Stavanger Peninsular, in the south west of the country. Dating back to the 12th century the city's centre is largely of 18th and 19th century construction with timber houses, which are protected as a result of their historical significance. The city's cathedral also dates back to the 12th century and is a popular tourist attraction. The city, which has managed quite well to retain its small town atmosphere has a number of museums that contain items that are of both local and national importance. The Norwegian Petroleum Museum in the city was opened in 1998 and is the city's most visited museum and the only petroleum museum in Europe. Established in 1864 is the Missjonmuseet which is the city's oldest museum and is located on the ground floor of the faculty building at MHS and contains around 5,000 exhibits. The city is also popular with visitors who use it as a base to visit the Norwegian fjords. As the gateway to the fjords the most popular attraction is Pulpit Rock which attracts around 200,000 each year.
Located outside Stavanger, the town's port services ferries to Hirtshals in Denmark. Local ferries go to Tau and Kvitsøy, while fast passenger boats go to many villages and islands between the main routes from Stavanger to Haugesund and Sauda.
The Norwegian town and port of Langesund, and the administrative centre of the region, is an old coastal town that can trace its history back to 1765. The town's economic fortunes have been linked to its harbour for lumber, shipbuilding and for ice and is located on a fjord also called Langesund. Visitors strolling through the town will see some lovely well preserved, and some restored, buildings that date back to the 18th century. Heading away from the town the area is rich in flora and geology, and to take advantage of the great outdoors, the town is known for having more sunny days than any other coastal town in Norway. The city is perhaps at its liveliest during the summer months when a number of concerts and festivals are held in the town, including the international Shanty Festival and the Seafood and Fish Festival.
The town's port offers ferry services throughout the year to Hirtshals in Denmark. The ferry port has 4 short stay parking spaces outside the terminal. Inside, there are vending machines providing snacks and refreshments.
