Notes:
Hol, Norway - A stave church is a medieval wooden church with a post and beam construction related to timber framing. The wall frames are filled with vertical planks. The load-bearing posts (stafr in Old Norse) have lent their name to the building technique. All of the existing stave churches except one are found in Norway, but related church types were once common all over northwestern Europe. The only remaining medieval stave churches outside Norway is one from 15th century located at Hedared in Sweden and one Norwegian stave church relocated and re-erected in 1842 in the outskirts of Krummhübel in Germany, now Karpacz in the Karkonosze mountains of Poland.
