PICTURES from GULEN

The administrative center of the municipality is the village of Eivindvik. Other villages in Gulen include Brekke, Byrknes, Dalsøyra, and Dingja. Gulen surrounds the Gulafjorden, which is considered to be the place where Norway´s west-coastal Vikings met at the Gulating, a governing body.

THE GULATING
A sculpture park is currently being erected in Flolid in Gulen in order to commemorate the fact that the Gulating legislative assembly met regularly on the shores of the Gula Fjord for a period of five hundred years. From the year 1300 the assembly was moved to Bergen.

The members of the assembly represented the farmers of Western Norway, and the Gulating is thus related to the representative institutions of today such as the municipal council and the Norwegian Parliament, Storting.
