In summer Stavanger is full of tourists. Every day in the port stops at least one large cruise ship and thousands of people visit the city-center (area above the lake) and a small old town (red area on the map).

The center is small, it's easy to get around in 2 hours. In the old town there are few traditional Norwegian streets.

After strolling in the center, we went to see the other parts of Stavanger, where tourists do not go. For example, the city has a lot of graffiti and murals. With the annual festival images are constantly being added. Here is a map of 2015 which we used.
