Norway comprises the western part of Scandinavia in Northern Europe. The rugged coastline is broken by huge fjords and thousands of islands. It shares land border with Sweden, Finland and Russia. To the north, west and south, Norway is bordered by the Barents and Norwegian North Seas. The main attractions of Norway are the varied landscapes that extend across the Arctic Circle. It is famous for its fjord-indented coastline and its mountains, ski resorts, lakes and woods. The main tourist cities in Norway are Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger, Trondheim and Tromsø. Much of the nature of Norway remains unspoiled, and thus attracts numerous hikers and skiers.
