Introduction
The Kingdom of Norway is known for its fjords, midnight sun, natural beauty, and its Viking history. The country is surrounded on three sides by ocean: the North Sea to the south; the Norwegian Sea along the east coast; and the Barents Sea on the very northern tip. All three seas are part of the northern Atlantic. Its coastline is 12, 473 miles long. Norway shares the majority of its eastern border with Sweden, with small borders with Finland and Russia in the north.

Population and language
The population of Norway is a little under five million people. It is the second least densely populated country in Europe. The official national language is Norwegian, although Sami is the official language in six municipalities. Minority languages include Finnish and the Finnish-like Sami spoken.
Close to 95 percent of the country is ethnically Norwegian, which includes around 60,000 Sami. The rest of made up of other non-nationals.

Norway is a protestant country, with 86 percent of the country Evangelical Lutherans that belong to the state Church of Norway, although only 10 percent attend services. Six percent belong to other faiths, while the final six percent do not belong to any religion.

Before converting to Christianity in the late 10th century, Norwegians worships pagan gods including Odin and Thor.

Major cities and tourist destinations
Oslo is Norway’s capital, busiest port, and largest city, with more than 586,000 residents. It is a finance, manufacturing, and cultural center with many art and history museums. A popular destination is the Nordmarka recreation area. During the winter visitors can ski and during the summer they can hike, bicycle, and fish.

Oslo is an art center. The National Gallery is home to Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” or visitors can take the T-Bane, or Metro, to the Vigelandsparken sculpture park.

A popular day trip is taking the ferry to Bygdoy Island, where the Viking Ship Museum is located.
Bergen, the second largest city with 266,000 people, was Norway’s old capital and is known for its Medieval architecture.

Trondheim was founded in 997 by King Olaf I so the city was home to a royal residence for many years. It is currently a shipping and industrial center, with a little more than 150,000 residents. The city’s gentrified old quarter, called Bakklandet, is a popular shopping and dinng area.

Climate
Despite its location, Norway’s climate is temperate because of the Gulf Stream that flows along its coast. The interior regions experience harsh winter weather with high winds, snow, cold but during the summer temperatures can reach close to 90°F. The coastal areas have mild, rainy winter conditions.

Economy
Unlike many other European countries that adopted the Euro, Norway has retained its own national currency, the Krone.

Norway has a gross domestic product of $477 billion. Its exports reflect its extensive natural resources: petroleum and petroleum products, machinery, minerals, ships, and fish. Main imports include food goods, chemicals, and metals.

Transportation
There are several large airports in Norway: Bergen Flesland, Oslo Airport Gardermoen, Kristiansand Airport Kjevik, Trondheim Airport and Stavanger Airport, in Sola.

Norway has a well-run public transport system. Trains, buses and ferries are often scheduled to link with each other. Boat and bus schedules change depending on the season and the day.
