Here, the rustic houses are covered with thatched roofs and some churches have been built with posts and beams. The midnight sun and the white nights of summer, close to the Pole, transport the visitor to another dimension. Norway offers you every kind of change of scenery!
More about study in Norway
Lakes, waterfalls, forests, hills carpeted with Arctic flora or covered in eternal snow and the characteristic cliffs of the fjords make up the picture. An explosion of visual impressions awaits you in Norway.
Like the other cities in Norway, Oslo, the capital and Bergen, the main port of the North Sea, offer their inhabitants an excellent quality of life. Daily life in these cities where nature and sports are an integral part of the urban decor is marked by warmth and mutual respect. These descendants of the Vikings, who have chosen to stay outside the EU, are guided by responsibility and efficiency. Their lifestyle is closely tied to tradition and nature which the Norwegians prefer to play with rather than brave. Naturally, the sea plays an essential part in both the life of the inhabitants and the Norwegian economy. Also, the maritime area surrounding the country covers a surface six times greater than that of the continental territory. A visit of the fjords by boat is always a lasting and unforgettable experience.
Along with nature, Norwegians also enjoy contemporary cultural life. The whole population is interested in theatre, cinema, music, fine arts and literature. With Edvard Grieg, the musician, Henrik Ibsen, the playwright and Edvard Munch, the painter, Norway radiates all over the world through its most famous artists.
