Located on the southern west coast of Norway between Bergen and Stavanger is the municipality and commercial town of Haugesund. Although the city is relatively compact with almost 38,000 inhabitants, it still impresses with its modern and young appearance.
The area around Haugesund is the area where the Vikings lived and where the kings of the Vikings had their seat. In and around the city you can experience the unique Viking history. Especially Avaldsnes on the island of Karmoy, the stone cross Krosshaugen north of Haugesund and the lighthouse of Ryvarden, where there is a museum, a café and an art gallery, are worth a visit.
