About Norway

Some facts about Norway

There is so much interesting facts about the small country called Norway. Norway is in Scandinavia and borders East towards Sweden, Finland and Russia. Norway is sparsely populated and has a population of around 5.3 million people.

Norway is a country with many forests, mountains and Fjords.

Norwegians love skiing and hiking, so if you are going to travel to Norway you should also try.

Language

In Norway they speak Norwegian, (Bokmål or Nynorsk). One thing I find very interesting about the language is that Norwegians, Danes and Swedes can understand each other. If we speak slowly and very clearly we can have a normal conversation.

Money

Norway is also one of the richest countries in the world. The Norwegian currency is NOK, (Kroner). This is mostly because we have very much oil. That also means that things in Norway is very expensive, so I would not recommend going on a shopping spree because your money will go quickly.

Swedes and Norwegians

There is a inside joke in Norway where Norwegians make fun of Swedes because they are “stupid”. For example the off button on a pc in Norway is called the Swedish button.

Norwegians just like to make fun of every thing Swedes do.

Norwegians are not rude

If you have read many articles about Norway you have probably heard that Norwegians like their personal space. It’s not that we are rude or anything it’s just that we respect each other and Norwegians is not a very big fan of small talk.
