Culture of Norway Go Back
 
Culture of Norway is distinct from any other European country. Situated far from centers of culture such as Florence, Rome and Paris, Norwegian culture has often been isolated from major European cultural trends and developments. Yet you will find a strong cultural background of Norway. Constituting many tourist attractions, Culture of Norway facilitates tourism in Norway.

The main influence on the Culture of Norway is that of the Vikings. Findings from burial sites of Vikings indicate that they were great shipbuilders with a strongly-developed artistic tradition represented in crafts, wood carving and jewelry. These significant aspects of Culture of Norway passed on to those parts of Europe which the Vikings occupied.

The beautifully-decorated stave churches built after Christianity was introduced into Norway also influences the Culture of Norway. Underscoring the artistic abilities of the Norwegian people, these churches indicate the development of the Norwegian art. It was this cultural heritage of Norway that was carried in by the famous Munch Expressionist painter Edvard Munch. Modernists like Gunnar S. Gundersen and romantic-period painters such as Adolph Tidemand, Hans Gude, and J.C. Dahl too contribute to the Culture of Norway.

Culture of Norway was influenced by Denmark to a great extent during their union. The vigorous and ever-developing Culture of Norway embraced architecture, decorative arts, music and folk tales. It is for this reason that during the breakthrough of Romanticism in Europe, Norwegian artists found ready inspiration in the breathtaking landscapes of their motherland. Norway is home to a number of Nobel laureates. Culture of Norway is indebted to Bjornstjerne Bjornson, Knut Hamsun, Sigrid Undset and most importantly Henrik Ibsen.
