Norway - September 29th, 2009

The Oslofjord is a bay in the southeast of Norway, stretching from an imaginary line between the Torbjørnskjær and Færder lighthouses and down to Langesund in the south to the city of Oslo in the north.

In spite of its name, it is not, geologically speaking, a fjord, but rather a bay. The bay is divided into the inner (indre) and outer (ytre) Oslofjord at the point of the 17 km long and narrow Drøbaksundet.

The entire population situated around the Oslofjord including Oslo is about 1.7 million, and the total population of all the counties situated around the fjord is approximately 2 million.
