Norway - moving around the country
The terrain in most regions is very difficult, so on the way you will often find narrow tunnels, bridges and sharp turns. This is why it is necessary to strictly adhere to the speed regulations and pay close attention to the road signs. In Norway, there are huge fines for seat belt defaulters, as well as for driving in a state of intoxication. There is also taxi service in the country, but it is expensive. They can be stopped right on the street or ordered over the phone. As a rule, taxis work only within the boundaries of one city. The cost for a pick-up is 3 Euros and for each kilometer ride, you will have to pay about one and a half Euros. Quite often tourists choose to move around by train. There are also high-speed regional express trains and local passenger trains. The fare depends on the class of the wagon. You can buy a ticket online or in the booking office of the railway station.
