Norwegian architecture taken out of fairy tales

Borgund Stave Church

It was built sometime between 1180 and 1250 AD with later additions and restorations. Its walls are formed by vertical wooden boards or staves. The four corner posts were connected to one another by ground sills, resting on a stone foundation. The rest of the staves then rise from the ground sills, each stave notched and grooved along the sides so that they lock into one another, forming a sturdy wall. (image source)
