Solvorn Church (Norwegian: Solvorn kyrkje) is a parish church in Luster Municipality in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located in the village of Solvorn. The church is part of the Solvorn parish in the Indre Sogn deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin. The white, wooden church, which has 300 seats, was built and consecrated in 1883. The architect Waldemar Hansteen made the designs for the building. The present church replaced the timbered church which was built around the year 1600, which had replaced a stave church that was built in the 14th century (or earlier).[1][2][3]
