Norway

Norway pictures. What characterizes Norway the best is unbelievable, breath-taking nature, which makes you feel you stepped into a fairy tale; and makes you miss it instantly as you step out of its enchantment. Fjords, glaciers, snow-covered mountain ranges, steep valleys, thousands of mountain streams and waterfalls, rolling hills... it's unimaginable until you walk those grounds, but these pictures try to give you a taste of what Norway is really like.
The pictures have been taken in the Jostedalsbreen National Park (home to the largest glacier on continental Europe, Jostedal); along picturesque fjords (including the Geirangerfjord, one of the most beautiful of the fjords in Norway); at the mountains of the Trollkyrkja caves; and there are also several examples of Scandinavian architecture in Trondheim, a colorful town on the Trondheim Fjord.
