Last updated on Feb 04, 2024

Summary: The pros of living in Norway include its high quality of life, excellent healthcare system, and stunning natural beauty. Norway is also known for its strong economy, low unemployment rate, and high wages. Additionally, Norway is a safe and peaceful country with a low crime rate. On the other hand, the cost of living in Norway is quite high, and the weather can be quite cold and dark during the winter months. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for those who do not speak Norwegian.
