Where is Scandinavia?
Today, some geography trivia from CGP Grey, explainer of all nerdy things. The question at hand is: Where is Scandinavia? That might seem like a simple question, but in thinking on it, I couldn't come up with a solid answer off the top of my head. I envisioned the fish-shaped peninsula including Sweden and Norway...but specifically, which countries constitute Scandinavia?
This is similar in principle to Grey's famous video, The Difference between the United Kingdom, Great Britain and England Explained. Simple question, nuanced answer, including the brilliantly succinct line: "Because Vikings." Enjoy:
