Old Stavanger, or Straen as the area is also called, is Northern Europe's best preserved area with wooden houses. Most houses are white painted, but offer variety in size, style and design.
The district is one of Stavanger's main tourist attractions and one of the city's most attractive residential areas. The district also offers several parks, handicraft shops, galleries and the Norwegian Canning museum.
