Norway’s Heritage contains a rich blend of cultural as well as natural sites, which are renowned not only for being the symbol of Norway’s antique natural and cultural gains, but also for their invaluable contribution to the world. A brief description of Norway’s World Heritage Sites is given below-
Saint Sophia Cathedral and Related Monastic Buildings
Saint Sophia Cathedral is an outstanding example of amazing architecture in Keiv, founded by a Kevian ruler, Yaroslav I the Wise in 1037. And, many former Kevian rulers were buried here along with him. Falling a prey to damages made by many rulers in the history, the cathedral was finally saved by the efforts of a number of expert historians and scientists. In 1934, the Soviet forces in authority gave it the status of the country’s antique museum. The whole area was influenced by the beliefs of Pechersk Lavra from the period between seventeenth and nineteenth century. Today, it is referred as the best cultural site in the Ukraine’s heritage sites group.

It brought a major breakthrough in the research relating to geographical sciences that discovered for the whole world the unknown thing about our planet.
