The village of Eivindvik - INFO
While visiting Eivindvik and
Gulen county, we hope you also will enjoy the history. The history of
Eivindvik and Gulen is very much the history of Nordic democracy. In Eivindvik
the Gula Court (Gulatinget) gave birth to the democratic fundament of
the Nordic countries through the development of the Gulating Laws at the
end of the first millennium. The priest Niels Griis Alstrup Dahl in Eivindvik
was representative to the first norwegian national assembly (in 1814)
and a significant personality in the development of agricultural organisation,
schooling for rural children, health care in the country districts and
architecture adjusted to coastal environment.
We welcome you all to a historical and pleasant stay in Eivindvik!
