The open area here has a nice atmosphere. It's quite lovely that the art galleries/museums are all very close to to each other and restaurants/places providing snacks inside are available too.

Something for everyone. It's got several museums including one especially for kids, the Kinder Zoom museum. Loads of museums and cafes for adults too as well as a small but nice gift shop. Do your research before you go to get the most out of it.

Very nice place full of life and art. Offers several museums and galleries to visit along with passive art installations all over the place which serve as benches or other facilities. Especially fun to visit during the night of museums!

One of the top places to visit in Vienna. There are a couple of Museums that everyone in Vienna should visit. For sure the transportation infrastructure is perfect like in all Vienna. I would really recommend to everyone that is visiting Vienna. Everyone should go to Museums Quartier.

Stavanger Cathedral

Stavanger Cathedral is Norway's oldest cathedral. Bishop Reinald, who may have come from Winchester, is said to have started construction of the Cathedral around 1100. It was finished around 1150, and the city of Stavanger counts 1125 as its year of foundation. The Cathedral was consecrated to Swithin as its patron saint. Saint Swithun was an early Bishop of Winchester and subsequently patron saint of Winchester Cathedral. Stavanger was ravaged by fire in 1272, and the Cathedral suffered heavy damage. It was rebuilt under bishop Arne, and the Romanesque Cathedral was enlarged in the Gothic style.

In 1682, king Christian V decided to move Stavanger's episcopal seat to Kristiansand. However, on Stavanger's 800th anniversary in 1925, king Haakon VII instated Jacob Christian Petersen as Stavanger's first bishop in nearly 250 years.During a renovation in the 1860s, the Cathedral's exterior and interior was considerably altered. The stone walls were plastered, and the Cathedral lost much of its medieval looks. A major restoration led by Gerhard Fischer in 1939-1964 partly reversed those changes. The latest major restoration of the Cathedral was conducted in 1999. Andrew Lawrenceson Smith is famous for his works here.
