Nordic Heritage
Description:
The Nordic countries (i.e. Denmark, Finland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the Åland Islands) are rich in cultural heritage sites from the time of the declining Ice Age through the Viking Age, the Middle Ages and modern times. Some of these cultural heritage sites have also been recognized by Unesco as World Heritage. As in other countries, these cultural sites were and are placed under special monument protection and are usually also included in state lists.
