Norwegian culture

Norway has an interesting and unique farm culture, which has resulted from both harsh climates and scarce resources, as well as from old property laws. This is cultural aspect is sustained to this day.
Of course, this is but one aspect, and these days Norwegian culture is so much more than this. These days, modern Norway is a melting pot of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds - With a focus on equal rights, fairness, and open-mindedness. Equality for women, respect for different cultures, high taxes (which the Norwegian people happily pay), are all but a few of the key points.

While Norway has some of the highest taxes in the world, they get quite a lot in return: paid maternity leave for up to a year, free education, health care, unemployment benefits and much more.

Cities of Norway

Cities in Norway are a unique combination of modern metropolis and small town charm. Like the landscape that surrounds them, Norway's cities are beautiful, blending cosmopolitan elements with well-preserved architecture, attractions and culture from the past. Oslo, the capital of Norway, is the perfect example—a modern city that brings together history, tradition and outdoor adventure with world-class museums, fine dining, café culture and a dynamic nightlife.

In cities such as Bergen, Kristiansand and Stavanger, you can find collections of restored, colorful wooden buildings and residences representative of historical architecture in the region. Bergen is also home to Bryggen, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site. Remnants from World War II can be found in Harstad and Kristiansand, and old cathedrals with elaborate altars and stained glass still stand in cities such as Trondheim and Stavanger. Unique to the area, the town of Ålesund is built in the Art Nouveau style with turrets, towers and stone carvings adorning the buildings.

Attractions in Norway

Norway is a country of festivals, and every city has its share of annual events. One of the most popular is the Bergen International Festival, the largest arts festival in the Nordic countries. Moldejazz, one of Europe’s oldest jazz festivals, is held in the city of Molde every July. In the north, Harstad hosts the Festival of Northern Norway, one of the most important arts festivals in the country. In addition, Norway has some of the best museums in northern Europe, including many open-air folk museums representing life in the country from the past century.

But of course, most people that travel Norway do so for its gorgeous natural beauty. From the arctic wilderness of Svalbard, the mountains, fjords, forests, glaciers, lakes, rivers and islands all combine to create a breathtaking landscape. In the summer, the “midnight sun” never quite sets over northern Norway, giving you more daylight for exploring. In addition, the country's northern location makes it an ideal spot to see the spectacular aurora borealis (Northern Lights).

Norway's varied environment offers a multitude of outdoor activities to enjoy. The Arctic climate, mountains and snow mean skiing, snowboarding, dog-sledding and other snow-related activities are available almost year-round. There are also water activities like fishing, kayaking, diving and whale watching. You can hike mountains and glaciers—or just play a few rounds of golf. In the Arctic wilderness, there is plenty of wildlife to see, including polar bears, walruses, Arctic foxes and many types of sea birds.

Brief history of Norway

When traveling to Norway, it’s hard not to think about the countries long history. In 872 AD, the various Viking kingdoms of Norway were unified by Harald Fairhair. Soon after, Norwegians found new places to settle all over Europe, including Scotland and Ireland, where they founded Dublin. In the 14th century, Norway and Sweden were unified when the Norwegian king also became the king of Sweden.

By the end of the century, Norway and Sweden joined Denmark in union, in the so-called Kalmar Union. 
While Sweden broke out of this union soon after, in 1521, Norway remained for several centuries, finally leaving the union in 1814. Only mere months later, however, Norway entered into a union with Sweden – this lasted until 1905, finally marking the beginning of the modern Norway we know and love today.
