Norway is the land of the fjords and mountains. Those who has never been to Norway before should go the next summer here in any case in order to explore this country themselves. You can stay wherever you wish: either in a hotel in Oslo or in a lonely cottage. Norway’s nature is unique in Europe and its cities have their own special charm. Here particularly mentioned should be the region of Sognefjord. The superlatives can meet each other here as Sognefjord is the largest fjord in the world. Besides, the steepest railway line in the world is situated in one of its side arms in a small town of Flåm. It winds about 18 km long route up to more that 800 meters high in the mountain towards the goal Myrdal station through a breathtaking landscape of Europe.
But that’s not all. Not far from the fjord in Jotunheimen there is the highest mountain in Northern Europe. There you will be able to find the winter snow even in June.
In any case you should visit the capital of Norway, Oslo. It is not a metropolis like many other major cities. There are just around 550,000 people living directly between mountains and fjords. Despite its manageable size there is enough experience in Oslo.
Oslo was the home of the painter Edvard Munk. A visit to Munk museum should be also included into your compulsory program. In addition, skiers should also make a visit to Holmenkollen, the oldest ski jumping in the world. Then you are welcome to attend the local port and one of its numerous cafes after completing the investigation of the city and its surroundings.
To cut a long story short, Norway is a country where one in every corner of the country will be able to find something special for himself and make a worth visit to a country.
