\n. \n Answer \n. \nThe Norwegian and Swedish reactions to the labour-camps were quite the same as the rest of the world's reactions.
Answer . Wow, what a question! Let's sum up some similarities: . Location: the most obvious answer. Both countries are located in Northern Europe and (together with Denmark) part of Scandinavia. . Language: although Swedish and Norwegian are different languages, they are closely related,… and Swedes and Norwegians often talk to each other with each of them using their own language. . Political system: both countries are democracies with a strong state, which means that things like welfare, health care, child care and education are considered to be state affairs. Swedes and Norwegians pay high taxes to make sure they can all benefit from this system whenever they need to. Notwithstanding this concept of "socialism with a human face" both are also capitalist countries with a well-developed free market economy. . And now for some differences: . Landscape. Norway has deep fjords, plateaus, high mountains and tundra in the north, Sweden has a more diverse landscape with agricultural plains in the south, and forests, rivers and numerous lakes up north. In the most northern part there are also many high mountains. . Climate. Norway is rainy and cold due to its location at the Atlantic coast and its high mountain. Sweden has a friendlier climate with less rain, more sunshine and higher average temperatures. . Mentality. Norwegians just say what they think and can be rather blunt, while Swedes are generally rather quiet and reserved. . Economy. Norway owes a lot of its prosperity to oil and also relies heavily on fishing. Sweden has a more diverse economy with a strong industry and a strong IT branche. . Hope this helps!

Answer . Who knows, Sweden has a larger population and probably military, but Norway is a NATO ally, and has oil and money. The Swedes are known to joke about wanting to start a war on Norway and then surrendering, so that we would become one country again :)
The food is also similar, and both countries eat alot of fish. Their languages, Swedish and Norwegian are so alike that they can usually understand each other.

Norway has …"Norwegian krone" (NOK) but is called "Norwegian crown" in English. Swedish and Norwegian people look the same. (MORE)
Simply to feed the birds... there may be some obsure religious reason though but I really doubt it.
The 24th of December in the evening. We call it Christmas Eve (Juleaften) - no explanation needed there. The day part of the 24th (Called Christmas Eve's Day - Juleaftensdag) is spend preparing for the celebrations in the evening. The reason we do this however, is because of our history. Chr…istimas (called Jul in Denmark - Yule in english) is a traditon celebrated by the native nordic population of Europe since before Christianity adopted the tradition and turned it into what it is today.. In scandinavia, istorically speaking , a new day started in the evening, not in the morning like today. Which is why the Scandinavians celebrate Christmas in the evening - it's a part of the old tradition. The 25th is usually spend with family, eating food and enjoying each others company. (MORE)

Norway and Sweden are two different countries and have two different languages (but similar). They also have different holidays, foods, customs, school systems and so on. The thing that connects them together however is that Norway was in union with Sweden from 1814 to 1905, but they never adapted t…heir language. The Norwegian written language is mostly similar to Danish, even though they have a totally different pronunciation. (MORE)

Norway and Sweden are both great countries - the "better" one largely depends on personal opinion. Their economies are fairly similar, and both have high costs and benefits of living. Norway's citizens tend to lean more on the asocial. asocial side, which suits some people perfectly; Swedes are mo…re social than Norwegians, but probably less so than what you're accustomed to. Norway has a higher GDP per capita, which basically means Norwegians make more money; Sweden has a more even distribution of wealth. Both countries have a fantastic welfare system - but only for permanent residents. Permanent residency is easier to earn in Sweden, since it is in the European Union, and that also adds the benefits of being able to move between other EU countries freely. So, overall, it's just whichever country you like better. (If you're looking for an opinion, then Sweden is better than Norway seen from an "overall" perspective.) (MORE)

The Scandinavian Mountains , in Swedish Skanderna , FjÃ¤llen ("the Fells") or KÃ¶len ( FjÃ¤llen being by far the most frequent name and virtually the only one in modern colloquial speech), in Finnish KÃ¶li or Skandit and in Norwegian KjÃ¸len , with the three latter meaning The… Keel , are a mountain range that runs through the Scandinavian Peninsula. The Scandinavian Mountains are equivalent with the Scandinavian Caledonides. The western sides of the mountains drop precipitously into the North Sea and Norwegian Sea, forming the famous fjords of Norway, while to the northeast they gradually curve towards Finland. To the north they form the border between Norway and Sweden, still reaching 2,000 m high (6,600 ft) at the Arctic circle. Source: Wikipedia (MORE)
Sweden is to the east on the Scandinavian peninsula. They have a varied landscape, with islands, green meadows, forests, and in the northwest there are mountains. Norway is west on the Scandinavian peninsula. They have mostly mountains and fjords along the coast, and some forests and fields inlan…d in the southeast. History: Both nations were once in the Kalmar union with Denmark, but Sweden left it in the1600's. From 1611, Sweden became one of the leading powers of Europe, due to the genius of Axel Oxenstierna, and King Gustavus Adolphus. Sweden found itself transformed into the leader of Protestantism. In that era, it controlled Finland, the Baltics, parts of Russia, some Norwegian areas and some areas around Denmark. This era of being a great power ended in 1718. Norway continued to be with Denmark until 1814. It was promised to Sweden after the Napoleon war, but Norway attempted to become an independent nation. It was then invaded by Sweden, but was allowed to have its own parliament while Sweden still controlled all Foreign Policies. Norway finally gained its independence in 1905, peacefully. Norway, Sweden and Denmark were neutral during WWI. In WWII, Norway was invaded by Germany, while Sweden stayed neutral. (Because Norway was in an unwanted union with Sweden from 1814-1905, and because Sweden stayed neutral while Norway was being invaded by Germany, some Norwegians feel a small grudge towards Sweden) Sweden has joined the EU. Norway is not a member of the EU, but the EEA agreement allows them to participate in Europe's single market . Culture: Norwegians live more in rural areas, while in Sweden they live more centralized in the cities. Swedes celebrate midsummer with their Maistang(May-pole), that they dance around and there's flowers and stuff. Norwegians make a huge fire and have barbecuing parties at midsummer. The food is different. Example: Sweden has Swedish meatballs, Norway has fiskeboller(fishballs) and kjÃ¸ttkake (big, fried meatballs). Norway has brunost, lutefisk, lefse/a and whale meat. Sweden has Swedish pancakes, surstromming and also lutefisk. Economic and inventions: Sweden has IKEA, Volvo, and Ericsson(Sony Ericsson). Norway has loads of oil, and invented paperclips and cheese slicers. Other things: Sweden gives the Nobel price for: Literature, Science etc. Norway gives the Nobel Peace Price. (MORE)
Yes. In Norway you can make about 2 or 3 times what you would make in the US. I met a girl in Kristiansand that worked as help in a book store and made about $20/hr. However, living costs in Norway are crazy. A small beer is like $8-9 dollars and I remember paying $17 dollars for small fries a burge…r and a drink at Burger King in Oslo Sentralstajon. I almost cried. Sweden is a little cheaper, not sure about Denmark. (MORE)
The German Nazis occupied Norway, Finland, Poland but not Sweden. Sweden was a neutral nation and did not have resources Hitler wanted.
as Portugal is to Spain... yes,but we like our other neighbours also Finland and denmark - to who we have a great bridge nowadays. --> we don't like that Norway are allmost as rich as oil sheijks.
To put it simple we can say that Sweden and Norway is generally alike. A list of important differences is: - Norways economy is based on oil and fishing, Sweden on industry - Sweden has about double the population (and more bidder cities) - Swedes are traditionally looking to Europe, Norway to US an…d England - Sweden is a EU member, Norway is not. - NOrway is better in skiing (but only barely...) :) (MORE)

The mountain chain is called "Skanderna", and it's from them we get the word Scandinavia.
Sweeden is norways neighbouring country, and shares borders, just like the US and Canada. Norwegians and sweeds speak slightly differently, but are able to understand eachother, just like the US and canada, however; norwegian and sweedish are considered different languages. Politically speaking…, Norway and sweeden are "Good friends". We trade, people migrate between the two countries for work and pleasure, just like any good neighbours should ;P (MORE)
Oslo Norway Oslo is closer ...it's a bit over an hour closer than it is to Helsinki
It's complicated, but Norway and Sweden are friends and belong side by side like a hand inside a glove. Typicality, a Swede in Norway or the other way around; will not be looked upon like a foreigner. This is because the countries are so equal, and the people in it of course. The same goes for Denma…rk too, Norway-Denmark-Sweden, Scandinavia in other words, are all very good friends. If a Norwegian breaks his leg in Denmark, he will get patched up in a Danish hospital, and vice versa. However - There are two things that Norwegians and Swedes got against each other. The biggest issue is that Sweden was neutral during the war, Swedes where not too popular in Norway in the recent post-WW2 times. Then some culture developed where Norwegians make fun of Swedes, and in Sweden it's the other way around. Those jokes still persist. In Norway you usually earn about 20% more than in Sweden, so often Swedish students try to get work across the border. Those Swedes are called "party-swedes" and are often being looked down upon by Norwegians. Probably because Norwegians became too posh after the oil and forgot how to party hard. (MORE)
Neither, nurses in both country struggle to get a fair wage. You would however earn more in Norway, but everything is more expensive in Norway so that extra wage would be spent on food and rent anyway. If you're stuck between Norway and Sweden, wage should not be the deciding factor.
If you mean combined? Then white males. White females are by far the largest group in Fennoscandia. After that you can distrubute distort and do what you like with the data. But If you mean ethnically there is no doublt that it is the Kurds. Assyrians, Yugoslav, Russian and Axeri people that number …the most. Somalis are increasing but the other immigrants do not like then so viloence occur. (MORE)
No, Iceland is a country, located on an island in the NorthAtlantic. Norway and Sweden are Scandinavian countries and are partof mainland Europe
That depends on if you mean by geography or culture. By geography, Norway is closest to Sweden, but culturally, Norway is probably closer to Denmark.
Sweden remained neutral during the the whole of WW II and therefore did not assist any combattant party. Despite this neutrality, Sweden gave some covert aid to the Norwegian resistance movement.
Most of the UK's weather comes across the Atlantic. As it passes over the UK, on its way to Europe, some of the waste gasses from UK chemical plants etc get taken up into the atmosphere - where they combine with the water in clouds to form acids. This falls back to earth as 'acid rain'.
No, they are not. Norway, Sweden and Finland are part of the large Scandinavian peninsula. The peninsula is attached to northern Russia, west of the Ural Mountains.
No name exists exactly for these countries combined. But here are two conventions: Scandinavia: Norway and Sweden. Denmark is usually thrown in albeit incorrectly as Scandinavia is the name of the peninsula where Norway and Sweden lie. Nordic countries: Denmark (with Faeroe Islands and Greenla…nd), Norway, Sweden AND Finland (with Aland Islands). (MORE)
They didn't, really. Since the early Middle Ages, Norway had beenpart of Denmark. Around 1820, Denmark ceded Norway to Sweden, butNorway then immediately declared itself independent and Swedennever had the military power to conquer it by force. Until 1905 thetwo countries existed as a 'personal unio…n', two basicallyindependently operating countries with one king, the king ofSweden. In 1905 it was decided by the Norwegian Parliament thatNorway should have its own king. The king of Sweden declined theoffer to have one of his younger sons on the Norwegian throne, andthe throne was then offered to one of the younger sons of the kingof Denmark. (MORE)
