Skandinavien = Sweden, Norway and Denmark (excluding Faroe Islands and Greenland)
Norden = Skandinavien + Iceland, Finland and Danish self-governing provinces, i.e. Faroe Islands and Greenland
Tack så mycket ! I was wondering the same thing.
Det är ganska intressant ! That's the kind of thing I like to know :)
Is "Scandinavien" spelled with an "en" at the end because it literally translates to "the Scandinavia"? (A bit like we say "Canada" in English but "le Canada" in French.)
Not really. It's just the Swedish eqivalent of the English -ia ending of many countries.
"Norway's in Scandinavia" is wrong, but "Norway is in Scandinavia" is correct. Why are these two considered to be different?
