Wow, there are more people in metro Detroit than there are in all of Norway. I did not know that. Norway does have a lot more density and historic architecture than we do here though. :)

Yes, Norway isn't actually overcrowded...;) But the population increase is today one of the highest in Europa, and we may pass Denmark and Finland in a few years.

And here are all cities over 10 000 in Iceland:

Reykjavik, 113 387 (estimated 31.12.2003) (177 890 in metro)

Icelandic names are quite nearly impossible to pronounce.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Yes they are hard to pronounce, its actually wors than you can imagine! They have this extremly difficult accent on many of the words. Islandic is the same as old Norwegian, or old scandinavian. But the language has growing from each other now, but i still understand the language quite a few.

I had a European Geography class, and they talked about the Nordic languages. They said that Icelandic children could read old sages with ease. And that Danish, Sweedish, and Norweigian are all similar enough that they are relatively easy to learn for native speakers. I guess its similar to French, Spanish, Portugese, and Italian being based on Latin. I think that the way languages have developed is fasciniating.

Norway seems to not have as much density in its cities. There really are not that many skyscrapers or highrises in Olso even. Is this true or am I wrong? Also, what about Finland?

Norwegian cities isn't very dense, but we can find a bit dense areas in the cities, even with its few inhabitants. Oslo has about 110 high-rise buildings which is standing today while Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger and Drammen has several buildings. But they are not colected in a smaller area, they are located over the whole city. Most of these dense areas is residential commieblocks from the 50s, 60s and the 70s.

I will give some information about Finland soon.
