DASHING DENMADR-A SCANDINAVIAN PARADISE IS THE BEST TOURIST PLACE IN THE WORLD
Denmark stands out as a tourist destination because of its popular tourist attractions in the form of medieval castles, Viking ruins and the rich rural countryside.
Western Norway has the lowest unemployment rates, lowest crime rates, smallest public sector, fewest people on welfare and the most innovative economy in the country. It is generally regarded as Norway's most well functioning region.
It is also the land of Hans Christian Andersen and Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark. Apart from it, Denmark has the reputation of thinking green.
The area shares a common history with Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Iceland and to a lesser extent the Netherlands, Scotland and England. For example, the Icelandic horse is a close relative of the Fjord horse and the Faroese language may resemble a West Norwegian dialect; many of the dialects in Western Norway, as well as the Nynorsk written standard are classified as West Scandinavian (which also includes Icelandic and Faroese), and contrasts to the Bokmål written standard and the Østnorsk spoken dialect of Eastern Norway that are generally classified as East Scandinavian, along with Danish, Swedish and others.

Danish food is a challenge to your taste buds while its climate is always pleasant and mild throughout the year. Denmark combines the holiday mood on beaches along with the innumerable rich heritage of one of the oldest places in Europe.
Western Norway has also had a large emigration to the United States, Canada, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and the United Kingdom. It is possible that as many as 2.5 million Norwegians from Western Norway live in North America. This applies particularly the states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota and South Dakota. The Icelandic and Faroese people, and many people in the British Isles, are descendants of Norsemen and Vikings who emigrated from Western Norway during the Viking Age. On the other hand, thousands of Western Norwegians are descendants of Dutch and German traders who arrived in the 16th and the 17th centuries, especially in Bergen.
