There is a country in the world where the sun can be seen even in the middle of the night. Not only that, many times the sun does not appear there day after day. Norway is the land of these strange rules. This country is known all over the world as the land of the evening sun.

In the heat of the Northern Hemisphere in Norway, the sky is always bright without a few months of sunset, whereas in winter the sun does not rise for a few months. And then the northern light or aurora borealis is often seen. Oslo, the capital of Norway, located at a latitude of 60 degrees, has two months of daylight in June-July. This means that the sun never sets completely at this time. As a result, the light of twilight is maintained throughout the night instead of the darkness of the night. The city of Oslo is located in the southern part. Further north at 72 degree latitude there is more sunlight during this time.

Not only in Oslo, but also in Stockholm in Sweden or Helsinki in Finland, which is located at almost the same latitude, and in many parts of Russia. However, Norway is known around the world as the land of the midnight sun. Every year thousands of tourists come here to see this amazing miraculous cosmic scene. Seeing the sunlight at night is a really thrilling experience. As the Earth's axis tilts 23.5 degrees from its plane, each hemisphere tilts toward the sun in summer, and then moves away from it in winter. As a result, in the Arctic and Antarctic regions, the sun is seen at midnight at a particular time of the year, but when it is winter in the Arctic, no distinction can be made between day and night. Because the sun never rises there. The whole Antarctic region is in darkness. Just then the Arctic enjoys sunlight 24 hours a day. As a rule, the sun rises and begins to travel very slowly.

In the evening the sunset reaches the horizon but then begins to rise again without setting completely as usual. This situation continued for about two months in the Arctic. However, the actual midnight sun is seen on June 21. After six months, the Arctic region becomes dark and the Antarctic region becomes sunlit. In the Antarctic, the sun appears at midnight from mid-November to the end of January. The periphery of northern latitudes is also sometimes called the land of the midnight sun. The sun can be seen at midnight near the Billet Tip in northern Canada.

Norway is known around the world as a country of peace. Every year on the anniversary of Alfred Nobel's death, the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded from the world-famous City Hall in Oslo. As a symbol of peace, there is a flame burning in the port of Oslo. Norway is also world famous as a country of numerous explorers and discoverers. His excellent history has been displayed in several museums. The Viking Museum in Oslo houses wooden boats used by Viking explorers who crossed the sea more than 1,200 years ago. At the Polar Ship from the Museum, Nance was spotted on a ship approaching the Arctic in 1895. The items used by the Antarctic winner Amundcell are arranged in tents, route maps, sleds, etc. The Kentucky Museum has the original Kentucky raft used by adventurous explorer Thor Heardall, as well as a variety of equipment he used.

He sailed from Peru to the Polynesian archipelago in 1948, covering a distance of 5,000 miles [101 days] in the rough Pacific Ocean. Also among the other museums is the huge Folk Museum with 150 notable houses. There, the ancient and present lifestyles, folk culture, etc. of the inhabitants of different parts have been highlighted. Special attraction is the igloo of Eximod in northern Norway. The Oslo Opera House is located in the heart of the Norwegian capital Oslo. The opera house won the Best Cultural Award at the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona.
