Norway is a country that not too many people know about as a tourist destination. With this being said over 11 million Internationaltravellers land at Oslo airport alone per annum. Here, we will look at some of the attractions that can be found in Norway in more detail.
It may be a surprise, but hundreds of thousands of the people that go to Norway visit the north and west of the country solely to visit the stunning scenery, which includes waterfalls and mountains. Furthermore, a lot of people enjoy looking for fjords (cliffs created by glacial activity). Some of the most popular fjords are truly stunning.
One of the most popular places to visit if you are a culture vulture has to be Bergen where you can find Bryggen. This area was made into a world cultural heritage site back in the late 70s. Since a fire destroyed a lot of the area in 1955 a museum has been set up to see what the area was like before then. Furthermore, the area has become a bit of a tourist spot. In fact, it is one of the most tourist friendly places in the country. In the city, you will find hotels, pubs, museums and even souvenir shops, which are not common in the country.
Remember, Norway is not a country that has ?mainstream? attractions due to its cold climate and harsher terrain but there are some amazing things you can do in the country if you put in enough research.
