Scandinavia and the World

Sweden Denmark and Norway

Sweden Denmark and Norway

Hooray for stereotypes!

Sweden, Denmark and Norway as we see each other and ourselves.

Sweden is seen as the most advanced country in terms of technology. In Norway they’re seen as snobs and arrogant, and in Denmark they’re seen as people who are very concerned with order, but loose all self-control when they come to Denmark to drink the cheep beer. For some reason Swedes see themselves as cleaner than the other two.

Denmark is seen, both by themselves and the others, as the most laid back country. Sweden see Danes as lazy and without self-control ever, and in Norway they’re seen as people who pursuit a comfortable life.

Norway is seen as the country that is most in touch with it’s beautiful nature. The Swedes see them as unhygienic fish-eaters, and the Danes see them as calm and easy going people.

Of the three countries, Denmark and Norway has the best relationship. Obviously. :XD:
But deep down we all see each others as friends. :)

As a Swedish national living in Oslo I have to say that it is not correct that Denmark and Norway should have the closest relationship. The Norwegian language has a lot of loanwords from the Swedish language: Fjortis, Liksom and typ only to mention a few of them. All Norwegians that I have meet so far understands Swedish perfectly, and they also grow up with Swedish television. My Norwegian friends view Denmark as a close neighbor, with a liberal view on Marijuana and beer. .

Norwegians frequently go over to Sweden in order to buy groceries and 100 000 Swedish people live in Oslo and another 100 000 Swedes live in other cities in Norway.

I am not denying that Norway and Denmark might be close, but saying that they are closer with Denmark that Sweden is just a theory that is not really based on any true facts.

I however must say that the stereotypes are pretty much spot on!
