Information about Norway

Norway, officially Kingdom of Norway (Norwegian Kongeriket Norge), constitutional monarchy in northern Europe, occupying the western and northern portions of the Scandinavian Peninsula. It is bounded on the north by the Barents Sea, an arm of the Arctic Ocean, on the northeast by Finland and Russia, on the east by Sweden, on the south by Skagerrak Strait and the North Sea, and on the west by the Atlantic Ocean, which in Norway is also called the Norwegian Sea. The Norwegian coastline extends about 2740 km (about 1700 miles) including all the fjords and offshore islands, the coastline totals about 21,200 km (about 13,200 miles). The passageway between the screen of offshore islands—known locally as the skerry guard—and the mainland, is naturally protected. The country's name, meaning "northern way," reflects its importance in linking the many small fjord and valley communities that are otherwise separated by rugged mountains. Norway has an area of 323,877 sq km (125,050 sq miles).
