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.

Porsgrunn is situated near Gunneklevfjord, and at the mouth of the river Telemarksvassdraget or Porsgrunn river (Porsgrunnselva), and is an important center of industry. Originally an industrial park, the peninsula of Herøya, southeast of the city, has today grown into a suburb of Porsgrunn.

Porsgrunn´s existence is due to a favourable position and good harbour. The muncipality has an archipelago, forests, lakes and farmland areas.
