PICTURES from PORSGRUNN

There are two town centres, Brevik in the south and Porsgrunn in the north. Porsgrunn is very urbanised and more developed industrially than most other parts of Norway. Brevik is Grenlands summer town.

Brevik

Brevik is Grenlands summer town. One of Norway´s best protected towns created from wood in the previous century. Brevik is regarded one of the best preserved towns from the sailing ship era.

Breviksbrua bridge was opened in 1962, and was a part of E18 until 1996, when the E18 was rerouted via a new bridge, the Grenland Bridge which lies further up the fjord.

From the E-18 (Oslo - Kristiansand) turn off at Brevik. The route is well sign posted.
