Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a Scandinavian unitary constitutional monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Jan Mayen, the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island.[note 1] Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres (148,747 sq mi) and a population of a little above 5 million.[10] It is the 2nd least densely populated country in Europe. The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km or 1,006 mi long), which is the longest uninterrupted border within both Scandinavia & Europe at large. Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak Strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side. It shares maritime borders with Russia by the Barents Sea; Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland by the Norwegian Sea; and Sweden, Denmark, and the United Kingdom by the North Sea. Norway's extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea, is laced with fjords, a renowned part of its landscape. The capital city Oslo is the largest in the nation, with a population of 1 million. Norway has extensive reserves of petroleum, natural gas, minerals, lumber, seafood, fresh water, and hydropower.
Two centuries of Viking raids to southern and western areas tapered off following the adoption of Christianity in AD 994. Norway expanded its control overseas to parts of Britain, Ireland, Iceland, and Greenland. Norwegian power peaked in 1265, but competition from the Hanseatic League and the spread of the Black Death weakened the country. In 1380, Norway was absorbed into a union with Denmark that lasted more than four centuries. In 1814, Norwegians resisted the cession of their country to Sweden and adopted a new constitution. Sweden went to war with Norway but agreed to let Norway keep its constitution in return for accepting the union under a Swedish king. Later Norway demanded independence, which it gained in a referendum in 1905. Norway remained neutral in World War I. Despite its declaration of neutrality in World War II, Norway was occupied for 5 years by forces of Nazi Germany. In 1949, it abandoned neutrality becoming a founding member of NATO. Discovery of oil in adjacent waters in the late 1960s boosted Norway's economic fortunes. The country maintains a welfare model with universal health care, subsidised higher education, and a comprehensive social security system. Key domestic issues include immigration and integration of ethnic minorities, maintaining the country's extensive social safety net with an aging population, and preserving economic competitiveness.[2][11]
King Harald V is Norway's head of state and Erna Solberg became Prime Minister on 16 October 2013, replacing Jens Stoltenberg, and the government made a shift from being a labour to a conservative government. It has administrative subdivisions on two levels known as counties (fylke) and municipalities (kommuner). The Sámi people have a certain amount of self-determination and influence over traditional territories through the Sámi Parliament and the Finnmark Act. Norway maintains close ties with the European Union and its member countries (despite rejecting full EU membership in two referenda), as well as with the United States. Norway participates with United Nations forces in international missions, notably in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Sudan, and Libya. Norway is a founding member of the United Nations, NATO, the Council of Europe, and the Nordic Council; a member of the European Economic Area, the WTO and the OECD; and is also a part of the Schengen Area.

The Beauty of the Northern Countries (Norway, Iceland, Finland, Sweden, etc)

A tribute to the beauty and culture of Greenland, Denmark, The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Finland including Åland, and Norway... including Svalbard, Jan Mayen, and the traditional territories of the indigenous Sami people. (The flag I display for Svalbard and Jan Meyen is not at all official.. it was simply a proposed flag. These islands usually display the Norwegian flag, as they are part of Norway, but I wanted to create a distinction for the purpose of the organization of this video.)

This Video is about a beautiful part of the world. I do not want the comment section to be filled with debates about what is Scandinavian, what is Nordic, whether the Finns were viking and so on. It makes me sad to see such arguments.

Tourists in Norway - HD

Tourists in Norway.
See how we managed to do southern Norway on a short budget in only three days with no place to stay. Original target was Gothenburg, second target was Prekestolen outside Stavanger. But with a bit of improvising we manage to drive through Norway and saw both typical Norwegian Fjords, mountains and beaches.

Until 1814, the Kingdom included the Faroe Islands (since 1035), Greenland (1261), and Iceland (1262), which was lost through the Treaty of Kiel. The Kingdom also included Shetland and Orkney until 1468, as well as the Hebrides and the Isle of Man from 1098 to 1266.(Listeni/ˈnɔːrweɪ/ nawr-way; Norwegian:

Na Uy (Bokmål: Norge; Nynorsk: Noreg), tên chính thức là Vương quốc Na Uy (Bokmål: Kongeriket Norge; Nynorsk: Kongeriket Noreg), là một quốc gia theo thể chế quân chủ lập hiến tại Bắc Âu chiếm phần phía tây Bán đảo Scandinavia. Nước này giáp biên giới với Thuỵ Điển, Phần Lan, và Nga. Khoảng cách từ các phần phía bắc và phía nam Na Uy lớn hơn rất nhiều so với khoảng cách từ đông sang tây. Đường bờ biển dài dọc theo Bắc Đại Tây Dương của quốc gia này là nơi có những fjord (vịnh hẹp) nổi tiếng của họ.

Vương quốc Na Uy còn gồm lãnh thổ của các đảo Svalbard và Jan Mayen tại Bắc Cực. Chủ quyền của Na Uy với Svalbard được đặt ra trên cơ sở Hiệp ước Svalbard, nhưng nó không được áp dụng cho Jan Mayen. Đảo Bouvet tại Nam Đại Tây Dương và những lời tuyên bố chủ quyền với Đảo Peter I và Vùng đất Nữ hoàng Maud tại Nam Cực cũng là những vùng phụ thuộc bên ngoài của quốc gia này, nhưng không phải là một phần của Vương Quốc.

Gibraltar. Travel / Tourism.The Travel Channel.

Gibraltar. Travel / Tourism.The Travel Channel.
Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean. It has an area of 6.0 km2 (2.3 sq mi) and shares its northern border with the Province of Cádiz in Andalusia, Spain. The Rock of Gibraltar is the major landmark of the region. At its foot is a densely populated city area, home to almost 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities.

An Anglo-Dutch force captured Gibraltar from Spain in 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession on behalf of the Habsburg pretender to the Spanish throne. The territory was subsequently ceded to Britain in perpetuity under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. It was an important base for the Royal Navy; today its economy is based largely on tourism, online gambling, financial services, and shipping.

The sovereignty of Gibraltar is a major point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations as Spain asserts a claim to the territory. Gibraltarians overwhelmingly rejected proposals for Spanish sovereignty in a 1967 referendum and again in 2002. Under the Gibraltar constitution of 2006, Gibraltar governs its own affairs, though some powers, such as defence and foreign relations, remain the responsibility of the UK Government.

Tourism in Gibraltar constitutes one of the British Overseas Territory's most important economic pillars, alongside financial services and shipping. Gibraltar's main attractions are the Rock of Gibraltar and its resident population of Barbary macaques (or apes), the territory's military heritage, duty-free shopping, casinos and marinas. Although the population of Gibraltar numbers only some 30,000 people, the territory recorded nearly 12 million visits in 2011, giving it one of the highest tourist-to-resident ratios in the world.

The Government of Gibraltar has sought to develop the tourism sector to replace Gibraltar's former dependence on the British military, its chief economic mainstay until cuts in the UK's Ministry of Defence budget led to the gradual run-down in the military presence after the 1980s. Gibraltar's marinas – one of which was the first to have been built in the region – have made Gibraltar an important hub for sea transport for over 50 years. A tourist boom began in the mid-1980s but stalled by the end of the decade before being boosted again in the mid-1990s by a programme of Government investment and marketing. The building of the new Gibraltar Cruise Terminal, a new airport terminal, pedestrianisation of key streets, redevelopment of historic buildings in the city centre and improvements to tourist attractions elsewhere on the peninsula have helped to increase tourist numbers considerably since the turn of the 21st century.
