Norway's 5th largest city and naming itself as "Norway's No 1 Holiday Resort", Kristiansand serves as a gateway to the villages on the southern coast and the inland region of Setesdalen. It does have a "petite" city beach with a swanky marina that does serve the holidaying domestic market during the fleeting summer months, plus a vibrant cultural and shopping scene with plenty of restaurants and cafes to haunt. Its' old town, Posebyen, has a host of old traditional wooden houses and there is a neo-Gothic Kristiansand Cathedral, if you need to say a prayer or two. This is a town for those into their seafood, as its' Fiskebrygga Quay is wall-to-wall fishmongers flogging their still flapping fish. Now coworking venues have appeared on its' streets catering to those who are looking for somewhere to get creative and involved with a likeminded community of inventive souls.
If you like to chat to the animals this is home to the largest zoo in Norway. Its' main pedestrian street in the downtown area is Markens Street, where you won't have to worry about being run over by a misguided vehicle under the steerage of one of the 900,000 annual tourists. You can do a bit of sun worshipping in the buff at the nudist beach named "Som" or play a game of volleyball on the beach, preferably wearing swimwear.
Norway has the fastest growing tech scene amongst the Nordic countries, when once it was lagging behind. Government programs have facilitated the entrepreneurship bubble within the tech sector and the mindset of the Norwegian startup ecosystem has adapted to this fast pace. The country is known as one of the richest nations in the world with large oil deposits in the North Sea being the prime reason for this abundance of wealth. When oil prices plummeted, entrepreneurism came to the fore and Norway is now considered as one of the best places to launch a new business. Dynamic and visionary, the focus is on diversification with smart and creative individuals creating companies solving real-world problems. Numerous incubators, accelerators and coworking venues have emerged giving the fast paced ecosystem a sense of cohesion and community.
