Norway extends across 14 degrees of latitude and measures 1.752 kilometers from North to South, making it a country with a varied landscape and climate seldom found elsewhere.
The coastline meanders northward with thousands of islands, bays and fjords. The country stretches from the mild, gentle south where snowfall is light to a tough, harsh Arctic landscape to the north, from where it curves inwards to the Russian tundra. In the west, deep fjords cut far inland where they meet a wild and beautiful mountain landscape with snow-clad peaks, glaciers and waterfalls. Further east the landscape is more open, with thousands of glittering lakes, extensive pine forests and a patchwork of farms and fields. Between the mainland and the north pole lie the islands of Svalbard, a little bit of Norway far out in the Arctic ocean.
The capital city - Oslo- lies at the head of a fjord, surrounded by wooded hills. Prosperity and growth in the recent years have put an emphasis on top-quality architecture and eye-catching iconic buildings. Norway has become one of the most modern countries in the word, but still retained its traditional roots.
