The city of Sandefjord (40,600 inhabitants in 2008) located in the county of Vestfold in Southern Norway – the Oslo Fjord. The town acquired city rights in 1845, and main industry of the city at that time, shipping and whaling. Today, Oslo is still a seaport, but whaling is replaced with industry and business. From the city’s port is a ferry connection to Stromstad in Sweden.
Sandefjord is perhaps best known for being a summer show, and between the peninsulas Østerøya and West Island are all 146 km of coastline with beautiful beaches, cabins and camping areas.
The city is rich in memories of the Viking Age and the Bronze Age. A major tourist attraction is the Historical Park Gokstadhaugen – where the Oseberg ship was excavated in 1880 (and it is now on display at the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo ).
Other attractions in Oslo include Camping chapel opened in 2004 (and possibly Europe’s only floating church), Bjerg Street (one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods – with white-painted idyllic wooden houses from the beginning of the 1800s), Swimming park – with the sculpture “Poseidon,” The Whaling Museum and the Whaling Monument from the 1950s (listed at the port).
