Norway is a country in Northern Europe occupying the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula as well as the volcanic island Jan Mayen and the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard.
History / Basics
Compared to Great Britain, Norway is considered a ‘young’ country. Having been in union with Denmark, then Sweden for several centuries, Norway became an independent country again in 1905. This meant it was able to choose its own king, and elect its own government. Norwegians today are a strong and patriotic people who are very proud of their country and its achievements.
