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.
