WORLD SHOWCASE — A striking wooden structure stands at the
entrance to the Norway pavilion in World Showcase at Epcot. This
stavkirke, or Stave Church, is styled after Gol Church of
Hallingdal, built around 1250 A.D. It houses an exhibit of Norse
artifacts. Forming a backdrop for the showcase and a romantic
exterior for the restaurant is a Norwegian castle which was styled
after Akershus, a 14th century fortress that stands in the heart of
Oslo’s harbor.
