Map of Scandinavia

In English, the term "Scandinavia" is often used to refer to the Nordic countries, which in addition to these three include Finland and Iceland. This use is much less common in the Nordic countries themselves. The Nordic countries share a common history, their societies resemble each other, and they have far-reaching cooperation, such as a passport union dating back to the 1950s.
