    In front of the Stavanger Domkirke there is the Breiavatnet lake. Along its sides there are modern and old wooden buildings. The lake is the meeting place between the ancient Stavanger with his fantastic cathedralm the Vagen and the wooden houses on a side, while on the other side there are modern buildings with hotels and offices which rappresent the future of the town.

    The lake seems to be the meeting place of the old wood houses of the town and the modern buildings on the other side.
    You can spend enjoyable moments walking by the lake or trying to feed swans and pigeons - which is pretty difficult because of the hungry and speedy seagulls.

    A stroll around the city pond - Breiavatnet

    Breiavatnet

    The lake/pond in the city centre is an excellent place for a stroll. Watch as families feed the pigeons, take a rest from the hustle and bustle, see the swans and ducks, or have a break on the may benches lining the waterside.

    BREIAVATNET [LAKE]

    THE Breiavatnet is the small lake with a fountain, situated beside the cathedral. I really thought the lake and gardens were very pleasant and a nice break from the concrete in the city centre. People were walking along the paths and sitting on the park benches, it seemed to be quite a popular place.
    There are some nice renovated houses and restaurants located alongside the lake.
    In Winter, the lake freezes and locals go ice-skating on the frozen lake.

    Statue in Stavanger
    4 more images

    In Stavanger, I found many statues and monuments. They were in parks and streets, they seemed to pop up everywhere.

    The most important statue is of a Gazelle by the Lake, one I looked at, but somehow haven't a photo of is “Dedicated to the Men and Women of Norwegian Blood who have contributed to the Building of America.”
    Another statue was of a boy and a Goat, and then a boy feeding Ducks.
