Norway - Daily life
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Traditionally, Norwegians have lived in small settlements along the coastline, as the sea provided the most of their livelihood--transportation and food. Modern Norwegians still live in the coastal territories, but now many prefer to live in larger cities. About three-fourths of the population live in towns and urban areas, the largest of which are Oslo and Bergen.
 
2     Oslo is the capital of Norway. It was founded by Norwegian King Harald Hardrada in 1048, which makes Oslo the oldest Scandinavian capital. After being destroyed by fire in 1624, the city was rebuilt in brick and stone by King Christian IV, who renamed it Christiania. The name remained until 1925, when it reverted back to Oslo.
 
3     Until the 1900's, families in Norway were very traditional, with the father as the head and ruler of the family. Since then, especially during the 20th century, society changed, and now every member of the family has a voice. In 1913, Norway became the first country to grant complete voting rights for women.
