Officially the Kingdom of Norway, this Scandinavian country is a constitutional monarchy that includes the western Scandinavian Peninsula, Jan Mayen, the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island. Norway shares a border with Sweden, Finland, Russia, and the Skagerrak Strait across from Denmark. The capital of Norway is Oslo. Norway has an extensive coastline along the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea. It is home to famous fjords, which are long, narrow inlets with steep sides or cliffs that were created by the glacier movement. This is a sparsely populated country.
Norway ranks as the second wealthiest country in the world and the standard of living in this country is among the highest in the world. Its economy is dependant on oil and gas exports, government jobs, and large state-owned industrial corporations such as Statoil and Aker Solutions – petroleum, Statkraft – hydroelectric energy production, Norsk Hydro – aluminium production, and DnB NOR – the largest Norwegian Bank. There are many locations for executive office space within Norway.
Entertainment And Dining Out
Hiking is a wonderful activity that will take you through any of Norway’s endless natural forests, mountains, along the coastline, and through its national parks. One of the greatest ways to enjoy the countryside is through Norway’s right to access, which means you can camp anywhere for a couple of days, providing you aren’t on cultivated land and are at least 150 metres (164 yards) away from houses and farm buildings. Food in Norway centres around fish and traditional Norwegian farm food that can grow in the northern climate and can somehow be stored for a year until the new crops are harvested. Because the regions are so diverse, there are regional foods that don’t translate outside a small area.
