Stavanger is a coastal city and is located on the coast of the North Sea. For a long time the city was unremarkable and nothing special was heard about it. Fish trading was the primary activity of the local people. Everything has changed in the 60-s, when one of the largest oilfields was discovered in the North Sea.

To buy a kilo of rice one should pay 5,7 dollars, and a dozen of eggs is about 6,8$. Such goods as meat and sugar are considered to be the most expensive in Europe.
