Let's keep learning about the countries in Europe!

Last time we learned about Greece.

Next up is Norway.

Norway is part of what is called the Scandinavian countries,
along with Denmark and Sweden
It makes up part of the Scandinavian Peninsula.

Vikings played a very strong part in Norwegian history,
sailing their large ships in the seas and attacking the villages.

The icy northern coast of Norway has over 50,000 small islands!

Norway also has fjords, (sounds like fee-or-ds)
which are long thin areas of water with high cliffs on either side.
