Introducing Kragerø

One of the favourite summer retreats for Norwegians, Kragerø has narrow streets and whitewashed houses climbing up from the water's edge. Kragerø has also long served as a retreat for Norwegian artists, and Edvard Munch spent a few restorative fishing holidays here and called Kragerø 'the pearl of the coastal towns'. A statue of Munch stands on the spot where he painted a winter sun over the sea.
