About:

Norway is situated far to the north in the western corner of Europe. Norway shares borders with Sweden, Finland and Russia, but our largest neighbour is the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Our country’s official name is the Kingdom of Norway, which in addition to the mainland includes the Svalbard archipelago and Jan Mayen. Norway also has territories in the Antarctic region. These are Bouvet Island and Peter-I Island.

The population of Norway was estimated at 4,481,162 in 2000; in 1998 it was 4,419,955. However, the population is very unevenly distributed across the country, with over half concentrated in the southeast, in and around the capital of Oslo.

Cultural life in Norway is very varied and many Norwegian artists have achieved international fame. Kari sometimes wonder how a small country as Norway has been able to produce such a variety of great artists, but feel that it perhaps can be explained to some extent by the tradition of education for all, food for everybody and the absence of war. Culture is the opposite of war. Culture creates, but war destroys.

Tourism accounts for around 15 percent of total service revenues. In 1998, there were 1,176 hotels with a total capacity of over 137,000 beds, and nearly 1,000 registered campsites existed. In 1998, foreigners accounted for 32 percent of hotel guest nights, much less than in previous years. The country’s main attractions are its picturesque coastline and its fjords, and it boasts a number of well-known ski resorts (Norway has hosted winter Olympic games and other major international sporting events).
