Kristiansand is a city and municipality, in the county of Vest-Agder in south Norway. Founded by and named after King Christian IV, Kristiansand is the closest thing to a seaside resort there is in Norway - a bright, energetic place which thrives on its ferry connections with Denmark and its popular beaches. There is also a reminder of its seventeenth-century origins: the quadrant street plan that Christian IV applied to the centre. It has major shipbuilding and repair facilities that support Norway's North Sea oil industry. Nearby there is the static inverter plant of the HVDC Cross-Skagerak. Kristiansand and Sørlandet usually have a lot of summer sunshine compared to most of Norway. There may be heavy snowfall in winter, but the snow rarely stays long at the coast. Music plays a key role on the city’s cultural stage, with the Quart Festival and the International Church Music Festival as the most prominent annual events.
