CultureNordic is a one-stop on-line gifts shop, featuring the very best of innovative and unusual gifts from Scandinavia’s leading cultural institutions, designers and artists
In the far north of Europe live the Scandinavians. They inhabit a world of extremes. From the silent Icebergs and Glaciers in the arctic, where life alternates between the perpetual Sunlight and a permanent night, illuminated only by the Northern Lights. Majestic fjords and never-ending reaches of pine forest. Rolling fields and the sunlit shallows of the Baltics. In this relative isolation, the Scandinavians grew as a race and developed their own distinct culture. A culture that has reached an expression in so many different ways.
The Nordics has always been a wellspring of creativity and aesthetics, which we here at CultureNordic are committed to finding and presenting to you, our customers.
