What do I need to know about living in Stavanger?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Stavanger, they said:

"Before retiring in Stavanger, expats should be aware that the cost of living is high, and that the climate is temperate with mild winters and cool summers. It is important to research the local healthcare system and to make sure that you have the necessary insurance coverage. Additionally, it is important to familiarize yourself with the local language, as English is not widely spoken. Finally, it is important to research the local tax laws and regulations to ensure that you are compliant with all applicable laws," remarked one expat who made the move to Stavanger.
