Rogaland is situated on the west-coast of Norway.

The largest town is Stavanger, well known as an oil-town. Due to the oil, the town is very international. The town also have the newest university in Norway (founded in 2004).

An other large town in Rogaland is Haugesund, approxemately 2 hours from Stavanger and 3 hours from Bergen (in Hordaland). Close to Haugesund is the island Karmøy (which means "the island that gives shelter from the open sea") known for the vikings. It is this fairway that has given Norway it's name.
