Transcript of Norway
(Well, not exactly) Norway is one of the world's oldest countries, founded in 900 A.D.
The Vikings, ancient sailors who ruled the Atlantic in the 1100's, as well as discovering Iceland, Greenland, and America, hailed from Norway.
As pirates, the Vikings spread their culture throughout all of western Europe.
Norway spent hundreds of years under the occupation of Denmark and Sweden, resulting in cultural mixing that made Norway the interesting place it is today! In more recent years, Norway has produced such famous people as Roald Amundsen, the Antarctic Explorer, and Edvard Munch, who painted The Scream.
For the last century, Norway has been experiencing exceptional peace and prosperity, making it an ideal spot to relax on vacation! Norway is known for its fjords, unique inlets cut into the sea-cliffs by glaciers that melted after the ice age. The south of Norway is a lowland crisscrossed by many rivers; the North is home to spectacular glaciers and mountains that were the birthplace of winter sports. Summers in Norway have a beautiful moderate climate.
It never gets too hot; temperatures top out at about 85 degrees in the summer.
Even in winter, temperatures on the coast remain fairly mild. Winters in the mountain country can be brutal, with temperatures up to -40 degrees, but the snow for skiing and other winter sports is the best in the world.
The sun sets late at night because of how far north Norway is, and travelers often go to the northern part of the country to see the sun shine at midnight.
