Are Norway, Sweden and Finland part of Europe?

14 Answers

  • Yes, all three nations are part of the continent of Europe.

    However, politically, only Sweden and Finland are part of the EU (European Union). Norway voted against joining.

    When it comes to travel, all three countries are part of Europe’s Schengen Agreement, which abolishes border controls between the countries. Thus you can pass from one to the next without passing through immigration checks (though there are customs checks when entering Norway, since it is not part of the EU).

    Economically, all three are part of the European Economic Area, which facilitates trade throughout Europe, creating a single market including countries that are not part of the EU. But only Finland has adopted the Euro as its currency. Norway and Sweden both still use their own currencies: the Norwegian krone and the Swedish krona.

    Confusing, isn’t it?!

    Also, it’s probably worth noting that while Norway and Sweden are both part of Scandinavia, Finland is technically not Scandinavian, though it is often listed as such (common mistake). The more correct term for the Scandinavian countries when including Finland is “Nordic” countries.

    Are Norway, Sweden and Finland part of Europe?

  • Yes, they all are a part of Europe and with Denmark and Iceland they form the Nordic Countries. Sometimes the countries are referred as Scandinavia but that’s wrong, since geologically Finland isn’t part of the Scandinavian Peninsula. Sweden, Norway and Denmark form up Scandinavia, but if you want to include Finland you should be talking about Fenno-Scandia. Otherwise just refer to the countries as the Nordic Countries.


    Haha.. oh lol.. You want to study that and have chosen not to go to Sweden? For real? And since you say Europe that means you won’t go to the US and not Japan either.. Seriously you have chosen not to go to two of the best countries in Europe to study in and where the education is also actually free of charge? Just omg.. And then you say no to Germany? Are you sure that you know what you want to study? So, since we can forget “low tuition fees” (you have already listed NOT to go to those countries).. Well.. The UK, the Netherlands and Switzerland (possibly also France but I somehow doubt it). Those are left. Not cheap but that’s your own fault. Geez. Have fun paying. @SJM: No it’s not for certain it will happen here in Sweden (and I think it’s the same in Finland). For now tuition is FREE (not cheap but FREE, you don’t pay a dime no matter where you come from) and will stay free. Making people pay for it is only a proposal. But you are right about the last part though, we shouldn’t pay for people who doesn’t contribute anything. I hate people who lives of the system but maybe it’s still free because there are lots of people who stays here and work after education.. Does anyone know?

  • Yes, they are situated in the Fennoscandian region of northern Europe, that occupies the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula.They finland and Norway are bordered by each other, and Russia, while the United Kingdom and the Faroe Islands lie to its west across the North Sea. Sweden has land borders with Norway and Finland, and is connected to Denmark by the Oresund Bridge.

  • They are certainly geographically part of Europe. Political agreements and trade treaties are not able to alter a nation’s continent .

  • Noo im pretty sure theyre in scandinavia, which used to be in europe but now is considered to just have a bilateral trade agreement with nationalistic and unionistic aspects which lead people to believe they are actually part of the continent.

  • Yes, they are considered part of Northern Europe.
