34 Wonderful Color Photos of Norway in the Early 1960s

Norway is a Nordic country in Northern Europe whose mainland territory comprises the western and northernmost portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula; Mainland Norway and the remote island of Jan Mayen as well as the archipelago of Svalbard form Metropolitan Norway.

Norway has a total area of 385,207 square kilometers (148,729 sq mi). The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km or 1,006 mi long), bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side.

Norway has an extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea. The maritime influence also dominates Norway's climate with mild lowland temperatures on the sea coasts, whereas the interior, while colder, is also a lot milder than areas elsewhere in the world on such northerly latitudes.

This beautiful country is also considered one of the most livable places in the world.
