Norway is far north of Europe, is the westernmost country on the Scandinavian peninsula. The country has a very long coastline – the Barents Sea in the north / northeast, the Norwegian Sea in the north and west, the North Sea in the southwest – and the Skagerrak and Kattegat in the south. Otherwise, the country has a common border with Russia, Finland and Sweden .Also, some overseas areas are part of the Kingdom of Norway. It applies to Bear Island and the archipelago of Svalbard (Spitsbergen) in the Barents Sea, Jan Mayen (Norway and Greenland) and a few smaller islands near Antarctica (Bouvet Island and Peter 1.s island).
Norway – which is largely a mountainous country – has approx. 4.8 million inhabitants (2009). The highest point is Galdhøpiggen (2,469 m). Along the coast, especially in the west, there are several deep fjords – as the best agricultural areas located in the eastern part of the country.
Although Norway is situated far to the north, does the Gulf Stream warming, so the climate is mostly temperate. At the far north it is sub-Arctic climate – and in that part of the country that lies north of the Arctic Circle is also a period with midnight sun in summer and dark winter.
The capital Oslo, which is located at the head of the Oslo fjord south of the country, has approx.580,000 inhabitants (2009). Other major cities are Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger, Kristiansand and Tromsø. The official language of the country is Norwegian, while the indigenous population – which has its core areas north of the country – have Sami as their native language (although most also speak Norwegian).
