Norway’s fingers of land spread out from the northern tip of Europe like the rays of the rising sun. Stunning landscapes, charming cities, and friendly folk come together to create a warm appeal and foster several great artists, adventurers and philosophers. Norway has one of the most ancient recorded civilizations in the world, and archaeologists date it as far back as the 11th century BC.
Its extensive coastlines provide sustenance and nurture a strong spirit of the sea in the Norwegians – which is perhaps best exemplified in its strong Viking heritage. Under Danish domination, Norway was heavily Christianized, but the Sami ethnic group continued to follow their Shamanistic principals and today there is resurgence in the appreciation of the Sami philosophy and way of life.
Norway has produced several musicians, artists, writers and filmmakers, as well as sportspersons, of international repute, as the arts and sports receive widespread support from its society.
