PICTURES from LARVIK

Larvik is many sided. A summer holiday in Larvik beats a trip to the South any time. Larvik, town of the open Fjord which embraces it´s small harbours, an area which simply seethes with summer life, whilst leaving room for stillness and dreams.

Minnehallen, The Rememberance Hall

A few minute´s drive south of Larvik lies the the happy little summer and artist town of Stavern, a pearl full of life and laughter the whole season. Summer time bubbles with life in "Norway´s Smile", which Wildenvey dubbed the town.

Built along the shoreline in 1926, "The Rememberance Hall" (Minnehallen) is Norway´s monument to fallen seamen. The building was constructed by builders from Bohuslen. The monument´s unique pyramid-shaped construction today serves as a landmark welcoming all sailors to Stavern.
