Photo of the day 21.04 – Sokndal
Sokndal is a municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. It is part of the region of Dalane. The parish of Soggendal was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838. The small lading place of Sogndal was separated from Sokndal as a municipality of its own in 1858, but again merged with Sokndal in 1944. Sogndalstrand is a picturesque, old fishing village, which may have inspired the municipality in becoming Norway’s first member of Cittaslow. The fjord Jøssingfjord, known for the Altmark Incident, is also located in Sokndal. The lake Eiavatnet borders on the municipality.
