Very nice looking city. I am glad you posted them. I converse from time to time with an fellow boater in Norway, and he tells me that it is very expensive to own a boat there. Its good to see some photos of people enjoying themselves on boats.

Although it is the fourth largest, how does the population compare to other three cities like Oslo?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Well, Stavanger has 5 times less the population of Oslo, 100 000 less than Bergen and about 40 000 less than Trondheim. But the Stavanger metro area includes Sandnes with 40 000 inhabitants and a few other smaller towns and cities.
