The Beautiful Blue Waters Of The Fjords Of Norway Pictured On A Vinyl Fridge Magnet
The vivid blues and greens of the Norwegian Fjords are captured on this attractive vinyl fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts. The fjords present a panorama of glaciers, waterways, mountains, and valleys. Visitors can experience the splendour of the fjords in a variety of manners such as hiking, kayaking, skiing, and rafting. There are many excellent vantage points in the fjords such as the area of Trollstigen. Here large mountains line the Trollstigen road (which is closed during the winter months), and the Stigfossen waterfall makes for an impressive view as its waters roar towards the Isterdalen valley. One of the best ways to visit the fjords is by boat cruise with many ports being called at by the large international cruise liners as well as local cruise vessels.
The Landmarks Of Norway
Norway is not all about the fjords; its cities provide much notable architecture. The Akershus Fortress in the capital city of Oslo consists of a number of buildings which were constructed over a period of 700 years. It is home to the Royal Mausoleum and has played a prominent role in Norwegian history. Today the grounds of the fortress are a very popular gathering place for tourists and local people alike. As well as the recreational use the fortress is home to the headquarters of the Ministry of Defence so it is still playing a vital role in the defence of the country. The impressive castle building plays host to many state receptions as well as being an ever popular tourist attraction. After taking in the sights of Akershus Fortress, and Oslo as a whole, tourists to Norway can return to the beauty of the fjords as depicted on our colourful vinyl fridge magnet.
