Nordic countries

The Nordic countries are a group of countries with close cooperation in the north of Europe. They include Scandinavia, a region specifically comprising Denmark, Norway and Sweden, but the term "Nordic" is broader and also includes Finland and Iceland.

Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark and forms the moderate conurbation that one million Danes call home.

The Faroe or Faeroe Islands are 18 islands in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway.

Oslo is the capital and largest city of Norway, and the third largest city of Scandinavia.

Stockholm is the capital and largest city of Sweden, with nearly 2 million inhabitants in its metropolitan area.

Helsinki or Helsingfors is the capital of Finland. Founded in 1550, the "Daughter of the Baltic" has been the Finnish capital since 1812, when it was rebuilt by the tsars of Russia along the lines of a miniature St.

Finland is in Northern Europe and has borders with Russia to the east, Norway to the north, and Sweden to the west.

Norway is the westernmost, northernmost — and surprisingly also the easternmost — of the three Scandinavian countries.

Denmark is the smallest constituent country of Scandinavia if the Faroe Islands and Greenland are excluded.

Sweden is the largest of the Nordic countries by size and population, with about 9.5 million citizens.

Turku is the oldest city and former capital of Finland. It was settled during the 13th century, making it one of the only few – and by far the largest – medieval cities in Finland.

Iceland is a mountainous island nation in the north Atlantic Ocean, between Europe and North America.
