Land of the Vikings

Norway is a country situated on the northwest part of Europe, surrounded by Scandinavian nations. A country more popularly known as the land of the Vikings, Norway has undergone several unions with countries such as Denmark and Sweden. One of the most remarkable things about Norway is its efficient handling of the state when it adopted "neutrality" during the many wars that occurred during the past world wars.

Norway during World War II veered away from taking sides between the Allies and the Axis forces. But the Germans invaded some parts of Norway. This loss of trust on neutrality has prompted Norway to become one of the founders of the United Nations, as well as a NATO signatory in 1949.
