Stave Church in Norway - 4K

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

In this video, contributor and pilot PilotViking treats us to a bird's eye view of a stave church, a once common church design in northern and western Europe.  Thousands of these wooden churches were built over a wide area, mostly in the late Middle Ages.  Alas, while they were easier and cheaper to build than stone churches, they did not have the same longevity: very few remain and virtually all of them are located in Norway.  This is the Hopperstad Church in Vik, a town in Fjordane Couty of western Norway.
