The Sverd i Fjell or the Three Swords Monument stands tall on the the banks of Hafrsfjord as a symbol of peace in the city. The monument is actually a bunch of three bronze swords measuring 10 meters in height. It was built in remembrance of the great war of the Vikings that was fought in the year 872. The monument is located far form the city center, but the journey here is worth it, for the structure is awe inspiring. A must go for all those interested in the rich history of the city.
