Larvik - The Coastal Municipality





Welcome to Larvik. 

The coastal municipality that includes great agricultural land, forests and mountains. It is the biggest community in Vestfold, Norway with 42,877 number of residents and has an area of 530 sq km.

Let me show you more around the place..

(Bøkeskogen) Beechwood 

Beechwood is a large park which is the primary symbol of the city.


View of the Farris Nature Spring


Farris lake provides drinking water to many parts of the county of Vestfold. 


Grabbed this one from Wikipedia

And the best-selling bottled water in Norway is produced in Larvik called Farris.


(Farris bad Hotell) Mineral Suite Hotel

Farris Bad - Has the enormous and most extensive spa branch area in Scandinavia, and is the only hotel that has established the spa on a mineral-rich spring water.



Stavern
Stavern - Often called the pearl of Larvik municipality because it has the best marina along the Norwegian coast, "Brunlanes Riviera" which is definitely a holiday paradise during summer with a huge number of cabins and campsites. 


(Bølgen Kulturhuset) Wave of Culture

Bølgen Kulturhuset - The new cultural center of Larvik was built with pride and uniqueness in 2009.  




(Nevlunghavn) Harbor

In Larvik municipality lies the village called "Nevlunghavn" with 700 residents.



(Ula Gjestehavn) Ula Marina
A very cozy and infinite port that offers 25 places. It provides a complete toilet facilities with showers and washing machines. A perfect place for the family and friends who enjoy swimming during the summer season. 

(Sjømenenes Minnehalen) Sailors' Memorial Hall

This is the monument for the Norwegian sailors in the merchant marine who died during the World War II.



I usually hangout in these beaches during summer. It takes about 3 minutes to walk to the nearest beach, while 10 minutes going to the other beach by riding a bike.

So how do you like Larvik?  

By the way, this is my city and this is where I live.

  4. 3rd attempt to comment here; hirap mag-type ha, error palagi... :(

    eto comment ko (memorize ko na nga eh...hehe):

    Ganda naman ng lugar mo Gracie, mas pinaganda pa ng mga photos mo. Pwede bang ihanap mo na rin ako ng work para makarating naman ako dyan...hehe!

    Hanep sa 3rd pic, may kasama bang emote yan "talikod effect" (sabi ni Balut) na yan? ;)

    Lagyan mo ng watermark ang photos mo, ang gaganda pa naman, baka meron "mabait" na mag-grab ng pics mo without permission eh. :)

  9. Hey Gracie,

    Yeah, she's on my blogroll too -- though I think 'The Pinoy Wanderer' was older by a few months. Mine started last year, she started just this year, if I'm not mistaken. But it's fine with me, both genders should be represented. LOL!

    Anyhoo, wow, you're in Norway. My dream is to live somewhere really green with vast grassland and a white sand beach nearby. Think New Zealand. And with a lot of cows too. Haha

    Take care always! And ADVANCE HAPPY BIRTHDAY, 3 days from today! Keep in touch! Btw, no chatbox?

    1. Naku bet ko yan sis romantic hahaha, so fascinating talaga pag-falls ang pinag-uusapan hehe naaantig ang puso ko dyan. Thanks for appreciating.. Oo malamig dito, pag winter so far naabutan ko na ang -15 degrees below freezing cold talaga yan sis kaya dito may kasabihan silang "there's no such bad weather, only bad clothing" hehe kaya kahit living like inside a freezer go! survive pa din due to makakapal na jacket at wool clothing sa loob hehe. God Påske! (Have a blessed holy week)

    Iniba mo na pala profile pic mo, di na nakatalikod, nakahiga naman haha... aantayin ko yong nakaharap naman!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Tama ka dyan, marami nga dito ang may bahay-bakasyunan ng mga kilalang tao dito. Malinis at maayos kasi dito, close to nature talaga.

    Haha napansin mo talaga prof pic ko, nakakaisip tuloy ako ng ibang anggulo para sa next pictorial ;p maliban sa pagharap sa camera. Siguro meron di lang natin natutuklasan pa yang auto-watermarks na yan.
