Hi I´m Norwegian and I live in Oslo, the capital of this country.
The official language is Norwegian, a Germanic language.
Norway is a unitary Parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy.
The Population It´s 4.7 million people and the flag is like this:

It´s a Nordic country in Europe occupying the western Northern Portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula, is bordered by Finland to the south and Russia to the east.

The Currency is Norwegian Krone and the total area is 323.802 square kilometres.
Over the centuries IX and XI was Viking and was the unification and expansion of the country. But the Norwegian royal line died in 1387 and the country entered a period of union with Denmark.
Norway remained neutral during the First World War, but was a founding member of the United Nations. It isn't one of the countries of the European Union, but it is part of the European economic area.

Norway also is the mother of many famous people as the painter Edvard Munch, composer Edvard Grieg, the mathematician Caspar Wessel. It has also given the world three Nobel laureates in literature: Bjornstjerne Bjornson, Sigrid Undset and Knut Hamsun.

One of the most habitual ingredients in our kitchen are: fish and whale meat from hunting and the fruits are very popular as the strawberries, apples and cherries.
A very typical and common habit is drinking coffee before and after eating!!
Finally I like living here because It´s a very nice country, but has one drawback: the climate is too cold for me.
