Larvik is beautiful but one of its most obvious shortcomings is the lack of inviting public outdoor spaces mostly caused by the sheer dominance of car traffic. The city in a way is a sleeping beauty – but it is time to wake up. There is a clear boarder between the green „nature“ and the grey of the built environment in Larvik.
