What are the regional Capitals of Norway?
Norway has something you could call regional Capitals, based on -in my view- a somewhat fictive division by geographical region. These are Oslo (East), Kristiansand (South), Bergen (West), Trondheim (Middle), and Tromsø (North).
Much more tangible are the capitals of Norway's 19 counties:
1. Sarpsborg (Østfold)
2. Oslo (Akershus)
3. Oslo (Oslo) (these are normally seen as one county called Oslo-Akershus)
4. Hamar (Hedmark)
5. Lillehammer (Oppland)
6. Drammen (Buskerud)
7. Tønsberg (Vestfold)
8. Skien (Telemark)
9. Arendal (Aust-Agder)
10. Kristiansand (Vest-Agder)
11. Stavanger (Rogaland)
12. Bergen (Hordaland)
13. --- (The templars really soiled a perfectly good number...)
14. Leikanger (Sogn og Fjordane)
15. Molde (Møre og Romsdal)
16. Trondheim (Sør-Trøndelag)
17. Steinkjer (Nord-Trøndelag)
18. Bodø (Nordland)
19. Tromsø (Troms)
20. Vadsø (Finnmark)
National capitals: By city proper, the answer is Moscow. By metropolitan area, the answer is Tokyo. Regional (i.e. province/state/etc.) capitals: By city proper, the answer is Shanghai, though it is technically a stand-alone "province-level" municipality in itself, akin to a city state. By metropolitan area, if you are to exclude regional capitals that are also national capitals, the answer would be Mumbai.
The term Scandinavia is slightly different from the Scandinavian Peninsula (Norway, Sweden, Finland) in that the cultural term may omit Finland but include Denmark, Iceland, and the Faroe Islands (territory of Denmark). The countries and their capitals: Norway - Oslo Sweden - Stockholm Finland - Helsinki Denmark - Copenhagen Iceland - Reykjavik (Faroe Islands - Torshavn, Danish Thorshavn)
The islands of the UK do not have one Capital. Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland London is the capital of the United Kingdom. Parts of the UK ( Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland) have their own regional capitals, as do the smaller islands- the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands, etc.
there are 22 administrative regions in France, plus 4 overseas. Here are five of them: - Picardie (English spelling Picardy), regional capital Amiens; - Bretagne (English spelling Brittany), regional capital Rennes; - Provence-Alpes-CÃ´te d'Azur (abbreviated PACA), regional capital Marseille (English spelling Marseilles); - RhÃ´ne-Alpes, regional capital Lyon; - Ile-de-France, regional capital Paris.
Scandinavia is actually three or four countries (out of a possible five), depending on how it is defined (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland or Iceland). Each has it's own capital. Here is a list of the capitals: Sweden = Stockholm Norway = Oslo Denmark = Copenhagen Finland = Helsinki Iceland = Reykjavik
Antarctica is not broken up into countries, or capitals. Instead, Antarctica is made up of territories that were claimed by different existing countries. Countries that hold territory in Antarctica include the United Kingdom, New Zealand, France, Norway, Australia, Norway, Chile, and Argentina. These territory claims are not recognized by all, but members of the Antarctic Treaty have an interest and participating role in Antarctica, but do not believe in claiming territory there. These countries include…
There are many capitals in the United States that were named after famous people. Raleigh, North Carolina was named for Sir Walter Raleigh. Montgomery, Alabama was named for Richard Montgomery. Frankfort, Kentucky was named for Stephen Frank. Annapolis, Maryland was named after Princess Anne of Denmark and Norway. St. Paul, Minnesota was named for the Apostle Paul.
