Natural wealth of Norway
A country where you can both relax in nature and enjoy modern places of interest. The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name “Norway” is, of course, its fjords. Unfortunately, getting to the real rocky-coast proves very difficult for many tourists, but if you're able to overcome such a long journey, it really will be worth it and an incredible sight! National Geographic recognised these natural masterpieces of Norway as the most picturesque places to travel, and you can rest assured that it won't be in vain.
Travellers visiting Norway are also attracted by the dense forests, crystal clear lakes and snow-capped peaks. There are so many slopes on the map that skiers and anglers from all over the world flock here. It is believed that the local reservoirs are full of salmon, cod, sea bass and herring.
For fans of modern architecture, Oslo, the Norwegian capital, is well worth visiting. This is a paradise for educational tourism! Popular places include the unique Vigeland sculpture park, where you can walk for hours, the Viking Ship Museum of the 9th century, the Akershus Fortress, the Royal Palace and Frogner Park. Also close to the capital, in Holmenkollen, is the world's first ski jump and training base for cross-country skiers. Other tourist centers in Norway include the cities of Trondheim, Tromsø, Bergen and Stavanger.
Yourguide to the country will point out that long-distance transport is very well developed. It's possible to get around the country on high-speed trains, buses and ferries.
